Cuvée Laurence 2017 Entre Deux Mers Bordeaux 12.5%
Gold Award, Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, 2018
70% Sauvignon Blanc 20% Semillon and 10% Muscadelle. This is a classic, dry white Bordeaux blend of the highest order. The Sauvignon Blanc provides the gooseberry fruit and crisp backbone acidity, the Semillon provides the fleshiness and mid-palate ballast and the Muscadelle provides the floral perfumed tones. It really is a complete wine with all the trimmings. It has replaced the Cuvee Clemence we used to sell some years ago, but it is equally as good. It spends 6-7 months in new French oak barrels. A subtle, delicate Entre-Deux-Mers, with a complex nose intermingling grapefruit, white peach, blackcurrant and toast. Complex and lively on the palate with a background of pleasant woody and floral aromas.
