Following the heat wave and drought of 2005, the 2006 vintage was much more suited to the production of excellent white Bordeaux: the winter was wet, the spring cold and the months of June and July were warm and dry. August was more temperate and favoured ripening, and most of the white varieties were harvested before the September rain. The 2006 whites are fresher, livelier and more aromatic than those of 2005.
Bright, pale straw-yellow in color. Intense and elegant, with good aromatic complexity (white flowers and citrus fruit, mineral notes). Good balance between body and liveliness, aromas of fresh fruit and a long finish. This is a wine for pleasure, intense and easy-drinking.
