Tasting Notes

Vinous – 88

The 2018 Aile d’Argent is laced with pineapple, tangerine, white flowers, mint and lemon confit. There is good up front depth and creaminess, but the wine loses some of its initial richness on the mid-palate and finish. Ultimately, the 2018 comes across as a bit heavy. The blend is 55% Sauvignon Blanc and 45% Sémillon. [Antonio Galloni, 02/05/2019]

Robert Parker – 94

There was no malolactic fermentation and no Muscadelle this year—both unusual for Aile d’Argent. Composed of 55% Sauvignon Blanc and 45% Semillon (harvested August 30 to September 5), the 2018 Aile d’Argent has 13% alcohol and is a little reticent to begin, offering fragrant notions of lemongrass, freshly chopped ginger and lemon tart with a core of fresh pineapples, white peaches and aniseed. The palate is rich, sultry and exotic with loads of spices and tropical fruit and an electric backbone of acid, finishing very long. [Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 28/03/2019]
