With its striking (and heavy) square white bottle, this wine will certainly make a statement on any table. The wine itself, with Hubert de Bouärd (whose family owns Château Angélus) as consultant, is impressively ripe and concentrated, but still retains its crisp, fresh poise. The acidity at the end is intense and tight.
