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.
