60% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Sémillon. Barrel fermented, 50% new. Spicy and fragrant with ripe citrus – lemon and pink grapefruit – and the sense of oak richness and depth, as well as a light herbal note in the empty glass. Lots of creamy and spicy oak and lees influence on the palate, nicely balanced with the fruit. Pretty good intensity on the mid palate, just enough freshness and a little bit of alcoholic heat on the finish but it's a harmonious whole in the style of the vintage. (JH) 13.94% Drink 2021-2025
Lisa Perrotti-Brown. The Brown 2018 Blanc has an open-knit, expressive nose of lemon tart, key lime pie and warm grapefruit plus hints of crushed stones and mandarin peel. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers great intensity with layers of citrus and mineral notions and a long, lively finish.
