Winery Notes: "Vibrant and lively, the 2015 “Les Leçons des Maîtres” has an  effusive  nose  with  notes  of  orange blossoms,  lemon  zest, white peach and gooseberry.  This wine is a blend of 80% Sauvignon  Blanc  and  20%  Semillon aged  in  small  oak barrels.    The  former  gives  the  freshness  of  the  aromatics and  the  later  gives  the  structure  and dense,  limestone-like texture that fans out on the palate.   A remarkable wine for drinking now or aging for many years."

 

Jeb Dunnuck 96 Points: "While 2015 Les Leçons des Maîtres (80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon) is brought up in new barrels, you'd never know it and it has classic Bordeaux Blanc notes of green citrus, crushed rock, mineral water and hints of lychee. Medium-bodied, beautifully pure, elegant and yet serious, structured and lengthy, it's unquestionably the best Sauvignon and Semillon blend I've tasted from California"
