Give this 5 or 10 minutes to open in the glass because it has a pretty serious structure, deftly weighted, full of white pear, quince and apricot pit, balanced by savoury rosemary, straw and fennel notes, successful and totally moreish. A vintage that had the freshness necessary for great white wines in Bordeaux, and Y pulls away from the pack with this wine.
The weather for the 2019 vintage was characterised by a cool, wet spring, followed by very hot conditions lasting from June until mid-August. The heatwave enabled the vines to catch up with somewhat delayed growth and led to very quick ripening.
Thanks to these conditions, we began the 2019 harvest of Y relatively early. We picked the grapes used to make our great dry white wine between the 26th of August and the 5th of September when a perfect balance between richness and freshness was achieved, guaranteeing a quality vintage.
