Tasting Notes: 100% Sauvignon blanc, this impressive Dourthe La Grande Cuvée 2019 dry white is a citrus fruit explosion of lemon and grapefruit aromas intermingled with hints of minerality. Initially linear on the palate, the wine develops attractive, generous fruity flavours, fresh and lingering, underpinned by the typical poise of Sauvignon grown on limestone, which is increasingly more important in the blend. This fresh, very well balanced wine culminates in a long, aromatic finish.
Food Pairing: Seafood, including oysters and prawns, shellfish fish-based starters, grilled fish, exotic foods, cheeses including goat cheese.
Grape variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc.
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.
