This classic Bordeaux white wine is an elegant, dry version made with grapes sourced from the famed Entre-Deux-Mers ("between two seas") region of Bordeaux, France. Here, sun-drenched vineyards on well-draining limestone and clay soils are situated between the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers, creating ideal grape growing conditions featuring warm days tempered by the cool evenings.
A blend of Muscadelle and Semillion fruit from the northern part of the region was used in crafting this wine. Grapes were harvested at the perfect moment of ripeness for maximum aromas and flavours. Ferments took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks to harness even more bright fruit characters and freshness. Following fermentation, the juice underwent maturation on fine lees to add richness and complexity to the final blend.
In the glass, this wine is a lovely pale yellow in colour. On the expressive nose, classic notes of tangerine lead to more citrusy notes and delicious flavours of apricots on a harmonious, crisp palate. The wine is perfectly balanced offering roundness on the palate, complimented by a refreshing, lingering finish.
Enjoy this wine as delicious accompaniment to goat cheese, fish, shellfish and more, or as a refreshing aperitif all on its own.
Blend: 70% Muscadelle, 30% Semillon Blanc

Came on the site to start ordering for my DA fan friends - will have to wait until 11/5. But a friend brought some over to my place this week and I love it! Wines are nice, smooth, good with food. Love that I will have a cool gift to send to my girls who love this show.
Purchased this wine for my own Downton Abbey style party with girlfriends. Though it was fun to display the Downton Abbey label at our dinner table,the blanc was not well received. We moved on to a different wine. It is not sweet at all, has an underlying oakiness that no one cared for.
