The 2015 Aile d'Argent, Mouton Rothschild's dry white, is 55% Sauvignon Blanc, 43% Sémillon, 2% Muscadelle, is laced with attractive scents of white flowers, lemon and grapefruit. The fruit was brought in between September 2 and 9 which helps keep the flavors fresh, while a dollop of Muscadelle and a small amount of malolactic fermentation gives the Aile d’Argent its characteristic sweetness.

The 2015 Aile d'Argent Blanc, a blend of 55% Sauvignon Blanc, 43% Sémillon and 2% Muscadelle, has an attractive bouquet of lime cordial, pink grapefruit and apricot that gently unfolds in the glass. The palate is very well balanced with a keen thread of acidity that runs through waxy-textured fresh pear, grapefruit and lime notes. There is just a touch of malolactic fermentation here (actually around 7% of the total according to winemaker Philippe Dhalluin) that just lends cohesion and smoothness to the finish. With a dash of lemongrass loitering on the aftertaste, this is a very fine Aile d'Argent that should age well over the course of a decade, possibly more.

This has crazy energy with dried pineapple, pear and sliced apple. Full body, exotic and lively long. So exciting. 55% Sauvignon 43% Semillon and Muscadelle. Apr 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

Powerfully aromatic. Rather creamy nose suggests some Sémillon as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Almost sweet palate entry but very well balanced and crisply 'green' on the finish.  Really quite delicate in texture.  Stony finish. A success.  Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2017-2021

Lovely florality and fine white fruits with a citrussy lift. The potential complexity will be interesting to follow. Apr 2016, Steven Spurrier, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2017-2025

Made from five parcels of vines, all of them in Pauillac, Château Mouton-Rothschild’s white was picked early to retain acidity. Sappy, leesy and fresh, with a kiss of vanilla spice and notes of lemongrass and white pepper. Only 18,000 bottles made, alas. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2017-2022
