Product Description

Loustalet Buzet Blanc 65% Semillon, 25% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Muscadelle

The nose is intense, flattering yet remaining elegant and complex with floral nuances delicately highlighted by vanilla notes. The attack is ample with volume and a remarkable "sugariness". There is an acidity that is present but never excessive and brings a delicate freshness to this complex wine that can be served as an aperitif or during a gourmet meal.

The grapes were harvested at maximum ripeness, at the end of the night in order to benefit from the cool temperatures and thus preserve all their aromatic capital. Following a short maceration with the skins, the juice is gently extracted by pneumatic pressing. After careful racking, the juice is fermented at a low temperature. At the end of fermentation, the wine is matured on its fine yeast lees for 6 months to "feed it", bringing volume and greater complexity.

This wine would be perfect with fish, poultry and dishes served in a sauce. Can also be served as an aperitif.

Buty Semillon Sauvignon Muscadelle 2014

The sémillon provides eloquent florals and textural richness, along with flavors of golden fig, while the sauvignon and muscadelle contribute layers of rose, jasmine, pink grapefruit and lime spice, all with enough enlivening acidity to keep things delightfully fresh and bright.

From a trio of renowned vineyards: Rosebud Ranch, Lonesome Springs Ranch and the legendary Boushey Vineyard, this wine delivers a seamless combination of enticing aromatics, mouthfilling richness and lovely minerality—all with enough enlivening acidity to add focus and definition to the alluring fruit. The sémillon provides eloquent florals and textural richness, along with flavors of golden fig, while the sauvignon and muscadelle contribute layers of rose, jasmine, pink grapefruit and lime spice. Firm acids add an almost architectural undercurrent to the creamy texture, keeping this wine delightfully fresh and bright.


Review:

"55% aged in concrete and 45% in barrels, just 3% new; 60% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation. Pale gold-straw color. Pungent floral lift to the aromas of grapefruit, lime and fig. Fairly rich in texture, with an intriguing saline quality to the mineral and citrus flavors. Bright and long on the aftertaste, with lingering notes of grapefruit skin and peppery herbs. - Stephen Tanzer"
