Citrus, white fruit (peach and pear) and mint aromas. A light medium body and lingering bite, subtil and elegant. This refinement is the expression of Bordeaux Blanc! A unique village, difficult to find in the USA. Only Celerier's Cellar sells this wine in the USA.

Our dry white wines undergo a cold maceration on the skins for 6 hours in order to amplify the aromatic extraction, the tannins and the colour. They are pressed in a horizontal wine press and fermented quickly so as to limit oxidization.
Sauvignon Blanc 70% - Semillon 30%
Eventhough 2018 spring was rainy prior to the budburst, this stage and following ones beneficiated a clean dry weather. The warm and dry summer optimized the maturity of fruits and the aromatic component of Sauvignon Blanc. After vinification, wines revealed to be lush, aromatic and structured. An excellent vintage.
