"There was no malolactic fermentation and no Muscadelle this year—both unusual for Aile d’Argent. Composed of 55% Sauvignon Blanc and 45% Sémillon (harvested August 30 to September 5), the 2018 Aile d'Argent has 13% alcohol and is a little reticent to begin, offering fragrant notions of lemongrass, freshly chopped ginger and lemon tart with a core of fresh pineapples, white peaches and aniseed. The palate is rich, sultry and exotic with loads of spices and tropical fruit and an electric backbone of acid, finishing very long." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"A big white with very dense dried apples and peaches. Dried pineapple, too. Full-bodied, rich and flavorful. 45 per cent semillon, the rest sauvignon blanc." JamesSuckling.com

"The 2018 Aile d’Argent, which had been bottled in September, underwent no malolactic fermentation this year. It has a bright lemon thyme, mango and honeysuckle bouquet that is well defined and fresh, if not intense. The vibrant palate is almost Loire-like in style, with mango, Conference pear and a light saline note on the finish. Very fine, though not quite reaching the peaks of previous vintages."

"A touch cloudy. Complex and rich on the nose, there's oak's cedary spice but also an impressive depth of fruit, citrus and ripe pear. A definite tannin structure here, not particularly rich on the palate but well-structured and long. Sour grapefruit on the palate brings freshness. Longer than it is deep but harmonious. Spicy and quite tannic on the finish and that very slight tannic friction increases the freshness overall. The power is in the length rather than in the depth on the mid palate."
