Fuller tasting notes will come soon but in summary, "What a Treat!". This wine was my greatest find on a recent wine hunt - and after a long day tasting it was - and remains - sublime (and this from someone who is not the world's greatest fan of Sauvignon Blanc).
It is a classic Bordeaux Blanc from Pessac-Léognan said to be among France's greatest white wines:
80% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Sémillon
Medium to full body but with a crisp acidity which makes it really lively
Citrus fruit - lemon, grapefruit and nectarine - with honey and a minerality which is the result of the deep gravelly & chalky soils that the 30+ year old vines grow in.
This wine coats the mouth with its silky smooth texture and has a really long finish. I love it!
The 2011 vintage of this wine features on Nobu London's wine list
More detail to be added but in summary this wine will go well with fish and seafood but I can also see it as a great addition to the Christmas dinner table; its fuller body will not be beaten by the richness of the food and all the different flavours.

"Full-bodied but with lots of tension and excitement. Really racy and punchy. Quite light."
89 points Wine Spectator 2017
"Fresh and engaging, with a bright tarragon and verbena frame around a mix of white peach, star fruit and lemon sorbet notes. Keeps good energy through the finish."
