Bordeaux 2019: The Southwold Tasting (Feb 2023)

The 2019 Aile d’Argent Blanc has more tropical fruit on the nose, pineapple and touches of lychee, flirting with red fruit aromas. A bit flabby? The palate is balanced with plenty of fatness, more rondeur compared to its peers, more extract, more of everything! Yet it does retain freshness and the aftertaste feels long. But this bottle is a bit oxidized and therefore I will not score it for now. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting.
