Blanc de Lynch-Bages 2006 is imparted a rounded, yet refreshing complexity. The nose is dominated by very enticing floral notes with a touch of citrus, and on the palate grapefruit and white peach shine through.
From a clay and gravel plateau three miles east of Lynch-Bages, this is a blend of sauvignon blanc, semillon and muscadelle planted in 1988. A hot July and a cool, dry August produced this substantial wine with freshness that keeps it sleek and creamy rather than heavy. With long exposure to air it reveals layers of flavor, from mineral to beeswax, preserved lemon peel and lemon meringue. It feels grand, the vinous equivalent of a classic Bentley.
