2018 Morlet Family Vineyards La Proportion Doree White Blend Sonoma County California USA 750ml
100 Points Jeb Dunnuck!
"The flagship Bordeaux white, the 2018 La Proportion Doree is a magical elixir based on Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and a splash of Muscadelle that spent 16 months all in used French oak. Awesome notes of caramelized lime, honeyed nectarines, orange blossom, spice, and exotic flowers all soar from the glass, and it tastes like a top vintage of La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc on steroids. Despite all its richness and size, it’s elegant, seamless, and offers intensity with no sensation of weight or heaviness. I have no idea how long it will keep, but I've no doubt it has a solid decade of longevity ahead of it. However, there's no harm in drinking bottles today. Hats off to winemaker Luc Morlet for fashioning one of the greatest white Bordeaux blends in California! " Jeb Dunnuck
