Jane Anson

This is a lovely white, full of ripe fruits with exotic touches of mango and white peach. It`s a succulent wine with traces of minerality through the finish that are extremely welcome. There`s lots to enjoy here, although it may not hold its grip and nerve for as long as the 2017 will. Don`t let that put you off though - if you`re looking to drink in the next few years then this might be the one to go for. 42hl/ha yield. 40% new oak. Drink 2020 - 2030. 93 points

Julia Harding

68% Sauvignon Blanc, 32% Sémillon; 40% new oak. Intense ripe lemon with creamy oak entwined. Lots of oak spice. Intense on the palate too, a bit sweet and sour, with grapefruit and pineapple cubes (hard candy). Slightly harsh on the finish, bitter lemon aftertaste. 15.5 points

Lisa Perrotti-Brown

The Bouscaut 2018 Blanc leaps from the glass with bold lime cordial, pink grapefruit and white peach scents plus hints of ginger and marzipan. Medium-bodied, the palate has very focused fruit and great intensity with a pleasant oiliness to the texture and a long, refreshing finish. 90-92 points

Antonio Galloni

The 2018 Bouscaut is a tasty, pleasantly rustic wine to drink over the near term. 86-88 points
