Chateau Lafargue Cuvée Alexandre
Product Code: 10124/12
A classy aged Bordeaux white.
Tasting notes: There is pinapple and tropical fruit on the nose with a hint of vanilla too. Creamy palate from the yeast and oak treatment. It has a long finish and still some lovely crispness and liveliness. Nice savoury fihish from the Sauvignon Gris. A classic Bordeaux oaked Sauvignon Blanc. Drinking perfectly. (tasted July 2021)
