Notes of pineapple, honeyed melons and caramelized grapefruits are present in this wine, which seems to have backed off the oak. Very crisp, fresh and lively, it should be drunk over the next 5-6 years.||Gerard Perse seems to be moving toward a more restrained style of Monbousquet, and the results are extremely successful.

A blend of 66% Sauvignon Blanc and 33% Semillon, this has well defined nose with fresh grapefruit, green lemon and a touch of lime. The palate is well balanced with a brioche tinged entry, moderate acidity, touches of Tropical fruit on the yeasty finish. Very fine. Tasted March 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

A ripe, creamy style, with notes of green melon, white peach and macadamia nut that glide through a creamy finish. Very lightly toasty, with a macadamia nut hint on the finish. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

67% Sauvignon Blanc, 33% Sémillon. Printed 15% alcohol in Gérard Perse's brochure,but we are all told that is an error and in fact it’s 14%. 50% new oak, 50% one year old. Sweet and rich on the nose. Very big and fat. it certainly tastes as though it could be 15% but it is not heavy. Just not that distinguished but a nice change from the dry, sweet reds served before it. Very florally scented, heavy, rich and almost botrytised. Needs very rich food with it but certainly taken to the limit. jancisrobinson.com

This wine has a lovely linear profile, pretty aromatics with fresh acidity and a nice lift to the flavours. A blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Gris, there is no Semillon in this Bordeaux white. The style is lean, focused filled with bright fruity flavours. Very well made, the only shortcoming of this wine is its moderate rather than long finish. asianpalate.com
