Dourthe La Grande Cuvée Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc is made entirely from Sauvignon Blanc, whose rich, aromatic character is backed by great structure. Our winemakers select grapes from diverse terroirs located to the north and east of the Bordeaux Vineyard, resulting in a palette of Sauvignon Blanc aromas unparalleled in Bordeaux. The aromatic richness is enhanced by a highly specific vinification process, finetuned more than 30 years ago, consisting in maceration on the skins and low temperature fermentation; The wine is then aged on the fine lees, with batonnage, for 6 months, which strengthens the harmony of the wine and optimises the finesse and intensity of the resulting aromas.
