    Winemaker Notes

    The 2017 Chateau de Birot Blanc de Birot shines through in the crisp, mineral and lemongrass Sauvignon Blanc and smooth, melony Semillon. Together, they produce a delicious Bordeaux blanc with a satisfying finish. A true standout in a sea of Sauvignon Blancs - from Bordeaux and beyond.

    Blend: 83% Sauvignon Blanc, 17% Semillon

    Chateau de Birot, France
    Chateau de Birot Winery Image
    Located on the beautiful hillsides of Cadillac, overlooking the Garonne River 22 miles south of the city of Bordeaux, the Chateau de Biro has been producing wine for over 200 years in a place devoted to quality vineyards.

    Built during the second half of the 18th century for Monsieur de Parouty, an important Bordeaux wine producer, Birot was at the center of an agricultural estate which best hillsides where already planted with vineyards.

    This renowned estate was taken over in 1989 by Eric and Hélène Fournier-Castéja, both very familiar with the production of Grand Cru wines in Sauternes and Saint-Emilion. A major renovation program for the vineyards and cellars was undertaken at the time. The vines have been replanted according to the traditional method in Bordeaux by choosing rootstocks and grape varieties most adapted to the terroir.

    Since 2010 Arthur, one of their five sons, brings a new impetus to the modernization of the estate and the marketing of its wines.

    One of the most important wine regions of the world, Bordeaux is a powerhouse producer of wines of all colors, sweetness levels, and price points. Separated from the Atlantic Ocean by a coastal pine forest, this relatively flat region has a mild maritime climate, marked by cool wet winters and warm summers. Annual weather differences create significant vintage variations, making Bordeaux an exciting French wine region to follow.

    The Gironde estuary, a defining feature of Bordeaux, separates most of the region into the Left Bank and the Right Bank. Farther inland, where the Gironde splits into the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers, the bucolic, rolling hills of the area in between, called Entre-Deux-Mers, is a source of great quality, approachable reds and whites.

    The Left Bank, dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, contains the Médoc, Graves, and Sauternes, as well as the region’s most famous chateaux. Merlot is important here as the perfect blending grape for Cabernet Sauvignon adding plush fruit and softening Cabernet's sometimes hefty tannins. Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec may also be used in the Left Bank Bordeaux wine blends.

    Merlot is the principal Bordeaux wine variety of the Right Bank; Cabernet Franc adds structure and complexity to Merlot, creating wines that are concentrated, supple, and more imminently ready for drinking, compared with their Left Bank counterparts. Key appellations of the Right Bank include St. Emilion and Pomerol.

    Dry and sweet Bordeaux white wines are produced throughout the region from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and sometimes Muscadelle or Sauvignon Gris. Some of the finest dry whites can be found in the Graves sub-appellation of Pessac-Léognan, while Sauternes is undisputedly the gold standard for sweet wines. Small amounts of rosé and sparkling Bordeaux wines are made in the region as well.

    Sometimes light and crisp, other times rich and creamy, Bordeaux White Blends typically consist of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Often, a small amount of Muscadelle or Sauvignon Gris is included for added intrigue. Popularized in Bordeaux, the blend is often mimicked throughout the New World. Somm Secret—Sauternes and Barsac are usually reserved for dessert, but they can be served before, during or after a meal. Try these sweet wines as an aperitif with jamón ibérico, oysters with a spicy mignonette or during dinner alongside hearty Alsatian sausage.
