Fresh, bright, crisp and juicy, the lemons, grapefruit and green apple are made even better with a deft touch of orange rind and honeysuckle. Creamy, juicy and crisp with a lemon drenched finish, this is ready now and can age for at least 10-15 years with ease.

Lightly honeyed citrus rind, traces of vanilla, pomelo and the peelings of green apple grab your attention right away with a parade of invigorating citrus flavors. There is length and acidity giving the wine buzz and endurance.

Yellow citrus and honeysuckle with green apples are right out in front. Bright, fresh and invigorating, the lively finish has more that fresh citrus, with just a drop of honey. Interestingly, during the initial attack, the fruit seemed mute, but the wine and fruit just kept on going and building. The finish really lingers with its freshness and tension.

The harvest took place September 8 to September 13.

Not showing as well from the bottle as it did from the barrel, the wine offers fresh, lively, waxy lemons, grapefruit, spice and floral notes. Refreshing and mineral driven, this is already drinking well.

With a beautiful, gold hue, the nose serves up earth, fresh herbs, citrus rind and pears. Luscious in texture, with energy and depth, the wine is sweet, fresh and still delivering fresh citrus fruits, along with the additional, secondary complexities. The wine is quite long in the finish.

Honeysuckle, flowers, lemon, grapefruit, roasted nuts and vanilla custard scents are found in the perfume. Rich, ripe, round and fresh, this white Bordeaux wine produced from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, ends with a fat, spicy, tropical fruit and fresh lemon oil finish. Even though the wine comes in at a surprising 15.5% ABV, there is no sensation of heat. Everything is in balance.

With a hint of gold in the color, the wine offers butterscotch, honeysuckle, lemon, lime and buttery notes in the perfume. The sweet citrus finish delivers, softly textured, yellow fruits, apple, honey and vanilla notes. Fully mature, it is not often I get to taste 22 year old bottles of Pavillon Blanc.
