The wine's aromatic intensity expresses the typical characteristics of a fine Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc. Rigorous fruit selection results in an extensive array of aromas, ranging from a hint of box, through a rich palette of citrus fruits, finishing on delicate, tropical notes reminiscent of passion fruit. This concentration of aromas is underpinned on the palate by the magnificent harmony of the wine's fleshy character and refreshing liveliness. Aromatics, richness and length characterise the Dourthe La Grande Cuvée Sauvignon Blanc.
"Already bottled, this 100% Sauvignon Blanc represents a half million bottles, but the wine is very well made with crisp, melony, lemon zest notes. Drink immediately."
The Wine Advocate
"Packed with great Sauvignon Blanc herbal flavors, this is a delicious wine, at the cool end of the spectrum of white wine. Grapefruit and lemon juice are enlivened by a grassy texture and crisp, fresh acidity."
