Our Blanc comes from vineyards in Martillac and Léognan that are rich in clay gravel that date back to the end of the Pliocene epoch and the Quaternary period. The vines are over 22 years old and combine to create a stunning, textured and rich white that is truly representative of our château. As with all of our cuvées, the wine is made in the vineyard, starting with parcel-based management, recognizing the quality levels of each plot with each vintage. Working biodynamically, we do green harvesting, dropping fruit at key moments in the growth cycle to divert as much energy as possible into the best clusters of grapes.

The grapes are hand-harvested after vineyard sorting, then brought into the winery for another sorting. The whole berries are lightly, slowly pressed, to ensure maximization of fruit and freshness without bitter grape tannins. The juice is pressed off into French oak barrels and concrete eggs for fermentation and development, with further aging on fine lees before bottling.

Press Notes :

93 points, James Suckling – “Gentle aromas of acacia, white peach, lemon curd and wet stone, followed by creamy mango on the palate. It’s medium-to full-bodied with crisp acidity. Flavorful with smooth, generous layers of fruit. Drink or hold”
