Grapes have been growing in the Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux since the 13th century. In fact, the vineyard for today’s special has so much history that a pilgrimage route that runs through it to a neighboring abbey is protected by UNESCO. While the grapes are no longer tended to by monks, they are still tended to with as much care as they were almost one thousand years ago.
The Chateau de Fontenille Entre-Deux-Mers Blanc 2015 is an exceptional and particularly aromatic wine. A unique blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris, Muscadelle and Semillon leads to refreshing notes of white peach, apricot and grapefruit. On the palate it is richer and creamier than most white Bordeaux but it finishes crisp and dry making it an ideal wine to pair with light fare. Serve it alongside sushi, shellfish or goat cheese and you are sure to have a historically good meal!
