Critic Notes

This has grilled edging with a whiff of rubber reduction that clears in the glass. In the mouth there's a good weight of fruit and great tension. It's well held together and, as with the reds, the oak is far less evident this year. It will be interesting to see whether this is a style change, or the influence of the vintage. Citrus is joined by some elderflower and white flower notes that lift the palat. Plenty to enjoy here.

Dense and tightly woven white with dried-apple, lemon and lemon curd character. Full body. Lively finish. Focused.

Score: 92-93/100James Suckling

The oak is a little more evident here than on the three Graves 2017s just tasted in the UGC line-up. More spice and a hint of smoky reduction. More serious and yet still has lovely freshness. Mildly chewy, full, deep and creamy. Very good and persistent. (JH)

Score: 17-/20Jancis RobinsonDrinking Window: Drink 2019-2022

The 2017 Bouscaut Blanc has an attractive almond and white flower scented bouquet that gradually unfurls in the glass. The palate is fresh on the entry with a fine bead of acidity, smooth in texture with a touch of lemongrass on the finish. I am a little cautious with my score here although I am fully aware how well this shows once in bottle so it may deserve an upgrade down the line.
