An interesting wine to taste as there are not many 100% Semillon wines from Pessac Leognan. Quite floral in nature with honeysuckle, lemon curd, creme brule, and citrus at its core. Round, ripe, slightly oily, and with a lemon rind, and pineapple finish, this is at its peak. Good luck finding any, as only 1 barrel was produced. Drink from 2023-2029.
