Oaked Sauvignons five years on

Which Sauvignon Blancs improve in bottle?

This was an interesting tasting that reminded me how much I enjoy well-made oaked Sauvignon Blancs. It was a reprise of a tasting also organised by Richard Bampfield MW on behalf of Ch Brown five years ago. See Oaked Sauvignon – what works? first published in 2014. After the tasting he had been left with a bottle of 25 of the 32 wines, so decided it would be interesting to revisit them to see how they fared after extended bottle ageing.
