Winemaker Notes

Chateau de Fontenille Entre Deux Mers Blanc is a simple white, with a lot of lime and celery character. Medium bodied, with a light finish. It is a very aromatic wine, which highlights the characteristics of sauvignon of muscadelle and sauvignon gris.

Wine Enthusiast
This is white Bordeaux at its freshest, bursting with herbaceous flavors, very grassy. It does have some weight of green plum flesh and a creamy texture. Delicious.

Wine Spectator
Fresh and pure, with lovely verbena, kaffir lime and floral notes, followed by a bright, juicy finish. Drink now.

Chateau de Fontenille, France
Chateau de Fontenille is located very near the Abbey of La Sauve Majeure on gravel land bathed in generous sun. In the 4th century when the poet Ausone was praising the wines of the region, there was a villa at the nearby called "Font e Melha" of which some ruins still remain today.

The vineyards cover 42 hectares, 30 of which are red and 12 are white grapes. The soils are clay and limestone with some gravel. The wines are vinified traditionally with controlled tempratures and aged in 50% new oak for the reds.

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 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 blends.

Merlot is the principal 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 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 the Graves sub-appellation of Pessac-Léognan, while Sauternes is undisputedly the gold standard for sweet wines. Small amounts of rosé and sparkling wine are made in Bordeaux 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.
