Combining balance and complexity, the white wine is fresh and elegant, whereas the red wine is round, fruity, and distinguished.

This is both racy and rich, with quinine, honeysuckle and lemon pith notes along the edges of a core of yellow apple, white peach and acacia flavors. Everything knits nicely through the finely tuned finish. Drink now through 2022.

The Clos Marsalette 2016 Blanc is a blend of 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Sémillon picked 16-19 September and matured in 30% new oak. It has a light bouquet with grass clippings, Granny Smith apples and a touch of chalkiness. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp acidity, veins of orange rind and mandarin accompanying the citrus fruit with a touch of salinity on the finish. I actually prefer this to the 2015 last year.
