Parker review

The unusual blend of Sauvignon Blanc with a little Semillon called 2013 Taleia was designed to be something like a cold vintage Sancerre. It is produced from vines planted on chalky soils that fermented with natural yeasts in a combination of new French oak barrels, stainless steel and very old stone pools, 'lagares'. It might seem a little closed (possibly austere and serious instead) but there are also a greater diversity of aromas, aniseed, fennel and white flowers and less preponderance of the apple notes. The palate seems to have very good precision and show some minerality. 22,157 bottles produced. 92+/100.

Press

Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com: 92/100.(80% sauvignon blanc and 20% semillon; fermented in a combination of stainless steel, new French oak and lagars): Bright straw. Aromas of fresh citrus fruits, jasmine, anise and dusty minerals strongly channel the Loire Valley, despite the semillon component. Dry and stony on the palate, offering bitter lime and quinine flavors that put on weight with air. Finishes on an emphatic mineral note, with excellent clarity and persistence.
