68% Sauvignon, 24% Semillon and 8% Muscadelle. This year closed with a DIAM cork, last year a screwcap, though I see you can choose either when ordering. This is a really good vintage for Triolet.
It’s a charming, ripe and glossy vintage of Triolet, so smooth and flavoursome, but still has grip and juicy acidity. Lime and lemon curd, some spice and lemongrass, crunch of green apple acidity, a subtle hay/grassy element in there too. Finish is long, floral/vanilla scented, and silky, with a cinch of quinine-like bitterness adding refreshment. White Bordeaux blends don’t come much better than this. Drink: 2021 – 2035+. 96 points – Gary Wash, The Wine Front.
An estate-grown blend of 68% sauvignon blanc, 24% semillon and 8% muscadelle, matured for 11 months in barrel. Has exceptional drive, complexity and balance, its longevity proved by multi-vintage vertical tastings. Its backbone of acidity has ample lemon/lemon curd/fresh-cut grass to encourage a second glass. Drink by 2028. 95 Points. James Halliday.
