Le Nardian is the product of a wager between their now-retired Consulting Oenologue, Gilles Pauquet (also consultant to Chateau Cheval Blanc, Figeac and Canon) and JCP Maltus, that a low cropped white would see similar benefits to a red wine. The first wine was produced in 2000, and it continues to sell out.

Le Nardian has, as one of its major components, Muscadelle - a cousin of Viognier. They manage to get an almost Rhone-style sense with the wine as its aromatic quality comes to the fore.

"The 2018 Le Nardian is a blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Muscadelle and 10% Sémillon aged in 50% new and 50% one-year-old oak and bottled after 12 months. It offers gregarious tropical fruit scents of pineapple tart and green guava, leading to notions of spice cake, poached pears and dried apricots with a waft of honeysuckle. The full-bodied palate is packed with seducing honeyed stone fruit layers, framed by just enough freshness and a decadent oiliness to the texture, finishing long with a spicy kick. It is a style atypical for Bordeaux—slightly more Rhône-like in personality—and I like it a lot! Great for those who want a break from the norm.
This is the only white wine from Jonathan Maltus (of Le Dome fame) and comes from a vineyard just on the other side of the river, composed of clay over limestone with 10-year-old vines."
92 pts, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, WA

"Straw color. Perfumed aromas of acacia, pear blossom, orange and lemon zest. It’s medium-to full-bodied with a creamy, dense texture. Richer style. Drink or hold." 90 pts, James Suckling

"The 2018 Le Nardian Blanc is, once again, one of the most exotic dry whites in Bordeaux. Orange confit, pineapple, mint, white flowers and mango abound. Creamy and beautifully layered, with plenty of voluptuousness, Nardian is long on personality." 90 pts, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
