The 2015 Les Charmes-Godard, Nicolas Thienpont's barrel-aged Sauvignon/Sémillon blend, is once again striking. Lemon peel, lime, white flowers and mint are all finely sculpted in this brisk, beautifully delineated white. I very much like the energy here, yet there is also plenty of texture to back things up. Les Charmes-Godard is a blend of equal parts Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon fermented and aged in 500-liter barrels. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Les Charmes-Godard Blanc (part of Nicolas Thienpont's portfolio) is a blend of 50% Semillon, 25% Sauvignon Gris and 25% Sauvignon Blanc picked at 55 hectoliters per hectare. It has a fragrant bouquet with lychee, pineapple and citrus fruit scents, then honeysuckle and jasmine - very complex and alluring. The palate is fresh and crisp with grapefruit and Granny Smith apples on the entry - a keen thread of acidity, very vivacious and tensile, but it does not quite deliver the depth and complexity on the finish to complete the wine. Maybe that will develop in barrel? I hope so, because this is a delicious white Bordeaux that is often overlooked. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2018-2032

Delightful, with lemon pith, white peach, honeysuckle and quinine notes breezing along. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Big and bold on the nose. Very rich, almost sweet, and then, for the moment, the crisp citrus bit on the finish is not (yet?) integrated. Quite a show stopper but possibly too big and rich to marry with food easily. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2018-2026
