The 2018 La Proportion Dorée is a magical elixir based on Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and a splash of Muscadelle that spent 16 months all in used French oak. Barrel fermented with native yeasts, showing 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.
