Clarendelle Bordeaux White
Beautiful pale yellow colour with beautiful freshness and a delicious flavour. The nose is tremendously expressive with hints of tropical fruit (pineapple) grapefruit, melon, and white peaches. The balance is perfect, with moderate alcohol that maintains the tangy freshness. The wines are concentrated, full-bodied, and have a fine long aftertaste.
The 2011 vintage was atypical. Spring was incredibly hot and dry, whereas the month of July was the wettest in thirty years. August was normal and September started out rainy, but was abnormally warm thereafter. This resulted in an impressively early harvest for the white wines. Most grapes were picked in late August. Clay-limestone slopes in the Entre-Deux-Mers region overlooking the Dordogne River were once again the primary source for this wine.
