Tasting Notes

This is best ygrec ever with pineapple and lemon. Full body yet vivid and fresh. Incredible energy and depth. Distinctive wine.

Score: 97James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2017

The 2014 Ygrec is a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon with seven grams per liter of residual sugar. It has an attractive nose with scents of nettle, dandelion, gooseberry and grass clippings, the Semillon taking a back seat to the Sauvignon Blanc at the moment. The palate is very well balanced with the 20% new oak nicely integrated (the remainder is matured in two-year-old Yquem barrels). It is very refined with lovely passion fruit and kumquat notes towards the second half where finally the Semillon makes its presence felt, with touches of brioche and lemongrass developing in the glass. What a gorgeous Ygrec.

Score: 93Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (225), June 2016

A pale colour with a light green tinge. An intense Sauvignon Blanc nose with just a hint of waxy Semillon. Fresh, citric and mineral on the palate but there is creamy richness too. There are lovely flavours of white peach and the palate is actually more full and intense than the nose suggested. A touch of honey is nicely balanced by the brisk acidity. A finely balanced and delicious Ygrec.

Score: 17.5Farr Vintners, September 2015

This has a gorgeous whiff of toast, with alluring shortbread, lemon curd and white peach flavors. The long, creamy finish lets echoes of clementine and honeysuckle drift through. Rounded and creamy overall, but plenty long. A beauty. Drink now through 2020. 1,000 cases made.
