JEB DUNNUCK: "I loved the 2022 Château Lespault-Martillac Blanc, a richer, medium to full-bodied, textured beauty with of honeyed grapefruit and crushed citrus notes, some background minerality, vibrant acidity, and a clean, balanced, layered style that's going to drink nicely right out of the gate, yet also evolve gracefully. I'd be a buyer. The blend is 65% Sauvignon and 35% Sémillon, harvested between August 23rd and September 20th, that's still resting in 25% new oak. Tasted multiple times."
JAMES SUCKLING: "The salt and lime character is really pretty, with brightness and freshness. Full-bodied with sizzling acidity and flavor intensity. Key lime pie, too."
THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "White peach, pineapple, mango, lemon rind, and orange pith nuances take only a single swirl to uncover. The palate is fruity, sweet, energetic and open, so you can enjoy all of its sweet, yellow, and orange citrus notes on release. The wine blends 70%, old vine, Sauvignon Blanc with 30% Semillon. Drink from 2025-2032."
