This vintage offers ripe tropical fruits, fresh citrus notes, roasted hazelnut, macadamia, and citrus blossom . This is a wonderful wine with a core of ripe tropical fruit all held together by a luxurious yet well- judged streak of rich oak. Baroness Nadine is crafted in a different style compared to a few years back – the style is much more in keeping with fashion, and subsequently the use of new French oak has been toned down. Baroness Nadine 2019 is considered the best vintage produced at Rupert and Rothschild Vignerons, balancing racy acidity and creamy well balanced oak.

Aile d’Argent 2013, A.C Bordeaux£135.00 Buy Aile d'Argent 2013 possesses a deep golden yellow with a wonderful nose of grilled pineapple, peach, citrus rind, lightly toasted hazelnut and sweet spice. On the palate the oak provides a richness of texture, almost creamy but with a nice nip of acidity. There's a grapefruit like freshness wrapped up with ripe stone fruit and a hint of minerality. This is fabulous, and will continue to improve for at least six years. The blend always consists of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, although in some vintages Sauvignon Gris and Muscadelle will play a part. The wine spends its maturation period in new and old oak which provides a wonderful richness and complexity.
‘R’ de Rieussec 2018, Bordeaux Blanc Sec£29.95 Buy An almost equal blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon provides a nose of grapefruit and lime peel, then after a few minutes the Sémillon takes the lead role boasting notes of white peach and toasty hazelnut. The palate is bone dry but has a wonderful ripeness of fruit and a creamy mouth filling texture. There's a hint of vanilla and oak spice on the finish which is beautifully balanced. 'R' de Rieussec is still only made in relatively small quantities and expresses the richness of Sauternes without the residual sugar.
