The 2014 Blanc, 57% Sauvignon Blanc and 43% Semillon, was bottled one year earlier (September 2015); it has a fresh grapefruit and lychee-scented bouquet that is well defined, hints of passion fruit and clementine. The palate is fresh and taut on the entry with crisp acidity, very harmonious and with a tensile finish. It is not the most complex Aile d'Argent that I have encountered, but it should drink well over the next decade.
A plump, rounded style, with a slight waxy edge to the core of peach and nectarine notes, backed by heather and lemon curd flavors. A salted butter spine keeps this honest. Drink now through 2018.
