The blend is 40% sauvignon blanc, 40% muscadelle, and 20% of sémillon. That’s a very large percentage of muscadelle, which lends elegance and perfume to the blend. The sémillon gives roundness and richness, while the sauvignon blanc gives snappy acidity and citrus qualities. This wine is flinty and perfumed, with pleasant finesse and no oak.
