|Appellation||Bordeaux Blanc AOC|
|Grapes and vinification||65% sauvignon, 35% sémillon from our most gravelly plots. Winemaking: Skin contact followed by alcoholic fermentation in oak barrels.. The wine then goes on to age for 8 months in barrel and is stirred with a stick (bâtonnage) once a week to put the lees into suspension in order to produce more complex, aromatic wine.|
|Colour||Brilliant soft straw-yellow which deepens somewhat with age.|
|Nose||Spicy (pepper, clove and eucalyptus), blackberry and red fruit aromas with toasty, smoky, and forest floor overtones.|
|Palate||The fruitiness on the nose follows through on the palate, which is rich and long.|
|Tasting advice||This wine is at its best as an aperitif or with marinated salmon, foie gras, fish terrine, scampi, scallops, lobster, fish in a sauce, white meat, and most cheeses. It can benefit from decanting a half hour to a full hour before the meal, and is ideal served chilled but not too cold. Generally at its peak after 2 to 5 years.|
