|Sauvignon Blanc 60%|
Fresh, bright and enticingly aromatic, this wine possesses notes of white flowers, pear, peaches and citrus fruit, with lingering mineral intensity.
Vineyards of Chateau Tour Mondet are blessed with exceptional terroir and microclimate and benefit from unusual topography for Bordeaux. Variations of altitude create a unique patchwork of soils. They are alternatively composed of limestone, clay and rolled gravel. A rigorous work in the vineyard is regulated by first concerns: health of the soils and preservation of eco-systems. This results in healthier vines with intense depth, aroma and personality.
Harvested at night to maintain maximum fruit flavors and acid balance. Individual berries are selected on a sorting table, light maceration, light pneumatic pressing, racking before stainless steel fermentation at 16-18°C. Aged on fine lees for 5 months in stainless steel tanks to reduce exposure to oxidation. Limited sulfite additions.
Enjoy as an aperitif, with summer salads, classic seafood and shellfish dishes and goat cheese.
Enjoy within 2-3 years. Serve chilled.
