The 2015 Monbousquet Blanc is an attractive white built on texture and generosity. Ripe apricot, mint, white flowers and chamomile open up nicely. The Sauvignon Gris and Muscadelle give the Blanc much of its distinctive creaminess and body, along with exotic floral notes that brighten the finish. This is one of the richer whites readers will come across in 2015. The blend is 60% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Sauvignon Gris, 5% Sémillon and 5% Muscadelle. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Monbousquet Blanc is 60% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Sauvignon Gris, 5% Muscadelle and 5% Semillon. It has an attractive nose with honeysuckle, citrus fruit and white flower aromas. The palate is nicely balanced with soft, lightly honeyed pear and grapefruit-tinged fruit, but it needs more tension to come through on the finish to really make its mark.

5% 24-year-old Sauvignon Gris, 5% Sémillon, the rest Sauvignon Blanc - used to be 100% Sauvignon Blanc. Ploughed by horses for the last 15 years. They still have eight horses, boasted winemaker Fabien. 'Too many,' muttered co-owner Florence Cathiard. Fabien stopped skin maceration about four years ago to make the wine last longer. Broad and rich. Perfumed. Quite rich. Long and broad. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2018-2025

Sauvignon Blanc (60%), Sauvignon Gris, Semillon and Muscadelle. An exuberant style: aromatic Sauvignon notes to the fore, then ripe and round on the palate with a point of acidity on the finish. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2017-2020

Often the pick of the wines at the Gérard Perse tasting (partly because it’s harvested earlier than the reds), this is rich, peachy and exotic, with melon and grapefruit notes, a dollop of cream and aromatic oak. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2017-2022
