    Winemaker Notes

    Robe of light straw yellow. Intense, complex nose with notes of green limes, black currants, and box-tree. Slight hint of musk. The palate is marked by Sauvignon Blanc's typical fruitiness. Well-balanced and highly perfumed with flavors of black currants. A dry clean fresh finish of green tones.

    Chateau Saint-Florin, France
    Chateau Saint-Florin is located in Soussac, on the eastern part of the Entre-Deux-Mers regions. The 80-hectare estate has belonged to the Jolivet family for 4 generations. Jean-Marc and Catherine took over the management of the property in 1981. A dynamic and innovative couple, the Jolivets have modernized and expanded the facility. They are personally involved in each stage of the winemaking - from the viticulture until final bottling.

    In 1999, they spearheaded, in association with other local estates, the construction of a water-treatment facility in order to preserve nature. In 2004, the Jolivets were one of the first Bordeaux estates to introduce screw caps.

    The estate produces a Bordeaux Red, Bordeaux White and a Rosé. The wines wine medals each year in the Bordeaux and Paris Wine Fairs, and are mentioned in the Guide Hachette. The Bordeaux Rouge 2002 won a Silver Medal in the Paris Wine Fair.

    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.
