The 'Clos de Beauvenir' from Château La Nerthe is an absolute beauty in 2017. This sensational Blanc instantly impresses with incredibly complex aromas of citrus cream, ripe pear, crushed stones, tropical fruits and white flower nuances that all come together beautifully. The palate possesses outstanding precision and depth, complemented by flavors of orchard fruit, citrus as well as lemon custard which are all underlined by a lovely mineral character. It on on to demonstrate fantastic energy and purity through the long precise finish. While this is certainly impressive today, it also displays the character to drink exceptionally well for over a decade. One of the finest whites from the vintage.
