About

90-93

" This is still a bit tight, with a racy lemon pith frame around the core of white peach, tangerine, chamomile and straw flavors. Shows weight and zip, and should fill out nicely. Score range: 90-93 "

Product Description:

Vines:
""Le G" comes from a plot of 15 hectares located not far from the estate's Sauternes vines. As one would expect, these grapes are harvested before those of the Sauternes since "Le G" is a dry wine and the noble rot of the Sauternes, known as Botrytis, is not desired. The soils found in the various sectors of the 15 hectares include sand and gravel top-layers covering layers of red clay, limestone, fossilized oyster beds and white clay." - Importer

Cellar:
"All of "Le G" is barrel-fermented in barrels that were used for two vintages with the Sauternes. Batonage occurs over the course of the 6 to 9 month aging period in these Sauternes-enriched barrels. No malolactic fermentation is allowed to occur." - Importer
