Le Nardian, Bordeaux Blanc Sec 2018 – Case of 6 x 75cl En Primeur
This is the only white wine from Jonathan Maltus (of Le Dome fame) and comes from a vineyard just on the other side of the river, composed of clay over limestone with 10-year-old vines. The 2018 Le Nardian is composed of 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Muscadelle and 10% Sémillon aging in 50% new and 50% one-year-old oak; it will be bottled after 12 months. It comes bounding out of the glass with all of the exuberance of a young pup, offering up vibrant pineapple upside down cake, green mango, white peaches and spiced pears notes with hints of lemongrass, dill seed and white pepper. Full-bodied, concentrated and oh-so-enticing, it has seamless freshness lifting the wonderfully oily texture and finishes long and spicy. Yum!
