This wine is a tribute to Nicolas Lassagne's third daughter, Ambre, born in 2016.
Delicate with a complex nose, followed by a nice fruitiness and floral aromas.
Delicious with grilled fish or grilled vegetables.
"The wine is young, full of vivid white fruits. Fermented in wood, it has a toasty edge that adds an extra dimension of complexity. The wine with its tight texture will be ready from 2024. - Roger VOSS."

"Fermentation in wood has given this wine richness and spice. The white fruits and citrus edge show the tropical side of Sauvignon Blanc. With all this generosity, the wine is dense, as the fresh character shows at the end. Drink now. - Roger VOSS."

"An exotic, perfumed white, the 2020 Château Des Landes Ambre De Maltus Blanc reveals a lighter gold hue as well as a complex nose of honeyed flowers, tangerines, and hints of exotic grapefruit. Medium-bodied on the palate, it has good overall balance, integrated acidity, and a clean, classy style that's ideal for drinking over the coming 4-5 years or so."

"Fermented and aged in wood, this wine has a good balance between rich white fruits and touches of toast and spice. A warm, generous blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon, it is richly textured, finishing with ripe acidity. Drink from late 2021. - ROGER VOSS"

"A blend of mainly Sauvignon Blanc fermented in new wood, this wine is ripe and smoothly textured. It offers hints of herbal flavors but the main thrust is towards spice and white-fruit flavors. - Roger VOSS"
