Ideal weather in 2015 meant that Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon grapes ripened very early. We picked Sauvignon Blanc quickly from the 25th to the 27th of August in order to retain its precious freshness. Sémillon grapes reached ideal maturity the following week, with their skins just starting to be marbled by Botrytis cinerea. 2015 Y: the perfect reflection of an excellent all-around, well-focused vintage.

Wine SpectatorThis offers creamed yellow apple, green melon and verbena notes surrounded by a brioche and salted butter frame. The long and flattering finish lets a second wave of coconut, candied lemon peel and heather glide through. Clearly on the opulent side of the ledger, but there's a remarkably deft edge here as well. Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. Drink now through 2025.
