Domaine Michel Redde et Fils, Les Bois de St-Andelain 2007
From 40-year-old vines grown on silex soil. The nose has flint and citrus notes while the palate is fresh with precise acidity, and more citrus fruit with a hint of honey on the finish. This four-yearold wine shows just how well a Sauvignon from the finest soil can age. 19pts/20 (96/100pts)
