Ailes d’Argent 2017 – Bordeaux Blanc

Ailes d’Argent 2017 – Bordeaux Blanc

The nose is fruity, well-built and elegant. It reveals notes of ripe citrus and kumquat combined with hints of passion fruit, quenette, peach as well as small hints of flint. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced, a little bit tight and offers a fine gourmandize, tension, acid frame, freshness, deepness, a fine richness, a certain kind of vivacity as well as a good definition. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe citrus (mandarin, lemon and kumquat) and small notes of vine peach, apple associated with subtle touches of white fruits, racy minerality, small touches of quenette (in the background) as well as a very discreet hint of passion fruit and toasted hints/almond. Good length.
