"The 2014 Saint-Bris Exogyra Virgula, that alien-like name originating from a fossil found in the soil, comes from four parcels located on the same altitude. It has a strong nettle and gooseberry-scented bouquet that has a touch of asparagus underneath. The palate is fresh and a little herbaceous on the entry, touches of asparagus coming through in the glass with a clean and sprightly finish. It is a 'hardcore' Sauvignon Blanc for those that adore the variety." - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
Wine Advocate-Parker :
"When I tasted the 2014 Saint-Bris Exogyra Virgula last year, I must admit that I did not quite ""get"" this wine. Returning after 12 months, either I have become accustomed to what is an arresting wine, or the wine has improved. Maybe a bit of both? It has a wonderful, captivating bouquet with Japanese yuzu, wet wool, watermelon and nettle aromas that are extremely well defined and to be honest, different from almost every other white wine I have tried. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, very fresh with green apple and kiwi fruit, leading to a very focused and tensile, almost steely finish. Okay, I get this now. You just have to prepare yourself for this sui generis."
