Buty 2018 SĂ©millon-Sauvignon-Muscadelle White (Columbia Valley (WA))

#85 Top 100 Cellar Selections 2020
Return to List

Most Bordeaux-style white wines from Washington are Sauvignon Blanc heavy. This one flips the script, along with a heavy dose of Muscadelle that a few wineries in the state are working with. The aromas bring immediate appeal, with notes of whole orange, fig, herb and lees. A full-feeling, textured, flavorful palate follows, redolent with fig flavors. A lingering finish caps it off. It's glorious with a long life ahead of it. Hard to keep your hands off now but will be best after 2023. Sean P. Sullivan
