Ever since 2001, Château has had its own conservatory of white grapevine varieties, the only one of its kind in the world. This invaluable reserve contains 135 original strains of semillion and of white sauvignon blanc. This action maintains the diversity of the vines and ensures the perenniality of the vineyard, which is a formidable asset; it guarantees the infinite complexity of our great wines, and is also of inestimable pedagogical value. After 3 years of relatively cold temperatures, the heat finally arrived in 2015! From springtime onwards, we had a beautiful run of weather, with higher than average temperatures allowing the vines to blossom week early. Temperatures in June and July peaked at over 40°C, meaning that grapes could ripen early. Slightly cooler weather and sporadic rain provided the perfect conditions for "liquid gold." Our organic methods allowed us to begin harvesting botrytis-affected grapes from the 7th September! Wind, humidity provided by the Ciron, and afternoon heat... a perfect cocktail for optimal, even concentration. In 1 month, the harvest was done. Everything went perfectly smooth. This vintage is one for the history books.

94-96. Barrel Sample. This wine is packed with dry botrytis flavor, but also a bright freshness. Together they give an obviously sweet wine good structure as well as ripeness. The tension between the fruit and the mineral texture will allow this wine to age for many years.

Intense, with candied lemon peel, glazed yellow apple and honey notes streaming through, picking up mirabelle plum and papaya accents through the finish, which is carried by a buried racy streak. This has a good bright feel overall. Best from 2020 through 2040. 5,000 cases made.
