Vinification:After a cold skin maceration the musts are pressed and transferred to barrels. Alcoholic fermentation then takes place in the barrels. The wines remain in barrels to mature for about five months on fine lees with regularly stirring, which adds woody notes, body and structure.
Maturing:5 Months in oak barrels, with 30% of new barrels, to obtain a subtle, well-integrated woodiness. 100% French oak.
Service: between 12 and 14 °C.
Ageing potential: 4 to 6 years.
Enjoying & Sharing
Tasting notes: Château de la Brède Blanc’s freshness and liveliness make it a very elegant wine. It is pleasantly smooth on the palate and offers a very rich, refined aromatic range with the fruity citrus notes characteristic of Sauvignon Blanc, and “muscaty” notes of acacia or honeysuckle, typical of Muscadelle.
Food & wine pairing: The complexity of this wine calls for delicate dishes: shellfish, poached fish, or fish with cream sauce, young cheeses, or matured cheeses such as aged comté.
