The 2012 L’Après-Midi is a superb expression of the terroir of the estate. Intense and multi-layered, the bouquet is dominated by mineral,
white and yellow spring flowers, honeysuckle, hawthorn, white currant blossom, lily of the valley, lemon, lime, white peach, and goose-berry completed by touches of acacia honey and candied anise. Rich and zesty, the flavors are reminiscent of the aromas with additional fresh almond notes. The strong mineral background, a stamp of the estate, balances the overall richness, giving a superb refinement. The finish is layered, very long and elegant.

"The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc L’Apres Midi is a 2,400-case blend of 95% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Semillon that, like its siblings, spent eight months in barrel, of which 10% was new. It is a flamboyant, delicious, fig, melon and dried apricot-scented white loaded with fruit and reveals a hint of minerality. It should provide plenty of pleasure over the next 3-4 years."
