Clarendelle Bordeaux White
Beautiful pale yellow colour. Very rich and round on the palate with mineral overtones.
After fairly quick fermentation, the Sauvignon Blanc expressed intense tropical fruit and citrus (grapefruit) aromas, whereas the Sémillon and Muscadelle were more floral, with rose nuances.
Ageing on the lees toned down the acidity and gave a certain richness and length to the wine, while maintaining freshness.
The balance is perfect, with a great deal of finesse and elegance.
A wonderful vintage for dry white Bordeaux!
The first buds appeared in the month of April, which was particularly cold and wet. Fortunately, the very welcome sunshine returned in August and September, and the grapes were able to ripen normally. Thanks to this fine weather in late summer, the harvest went well and the grapes destined to make dry white wines were picked in early September, before the rain.
The particularly low yields accounted for remarkable quality.
