Winemaker's Notes

Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, Dourthe La Grande Cuvee Blanc captures the art of blending from the three different terroirs, creating a crisp, well balanced wine that expresses all the flavors of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. The nose has an outstanding aromatic intensity, displaying pronounced citrus fruit and black currant bud notes, and exemplary freshness. This perfect harmony makes it an exceptionally elegant wine.

Critical Acclaim

"Because of both time and space constraints, I am not able to provide tasting notes for the 2009 dry white Bordeaux, but it is an extremely strong vintage. Most châteaux equaled the dazzling quality of the 2007 dry whites. That said, the 2009s tend to be less classic than 2007, but more exotic, honeyed, and higher in alcohol, with compelling richness. The 2009s will probably have a shorter evolutionary curve, but these wines tend to last a long time, even in a vintage such as this. They are fascinating dry white wines. 88-89 Points"
