This wine has won multiple awards and accolades. The producer is considered one of the best in the vast Bordeaux sub-region of Entre-deux-Mers. Very good value! Dan Trauki at Wine assist summed it up "Gorgeous lingering citrus flavours, great poise & balance. This is an outstanding wine."
Region/Terroir: Bordeaux sub-region of Entre-deux-Mers. 12 hectares of vines.
Grapes: Sauvignon Blanc 40%, Sauvignon Gris 20%, Sémillon 20%, Muscadelle 20%. Average age of vines 25 years.
Winemaking techniques: Skin maceration for 24 hours. Cold-fermentation (16°C). Aged on fine lees.
Our tasting notes: Light gold colour. The nose is lifted and complex with aromas of citrus fruit and white peaches. The palate is fruity nicely well balanced. It has a pleasant "fatness" and on the finish lightly peppery and savoury, with a nice lingering finish. The blend being mostly sauvignon it brings to this wine a sharpness and freshness and the other varities add some roundness and complexity.
"A wonderful surprise. Fruity and smooth then a crisp finish" Jenny Sydney.
It is a perfect accompaniment for seafood and salmon, sushi, paella and goat's cheese.
