reviewsJames Suckling 97-98/100
A very exotic Aile d’Argent with dried-mango, fresh-pineapple, and sliced-lemon aromas and flavors. Full-bodied and very ripe, yet it’s framed by bright acidity. Tangy and vivid with a long, intense finish. Exciting. Contrastive. 38% semillon and the rest sauvignon blanc and gris.

The 2019 Aile d'Argent was picked 5-11 September, early in order to lock in the freshness and underwent partial malolactic fermentation. It is armed with an attractive bouquet of red apples, yellow plum and honeysuckle scents that gently waft from the glass. A touch of orange pith develops in the background with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a brisk, sharp opening, moderate weight, good tension with a touch of bitter lemon neatly counterbalancing the richness, whilst a potent spicy stem ginger note rounds things off nicely.
