Winemaker Notes

With pale green hues, this Sauvignon-Sémillon is radiant on both the nose and palate. Powerful aromas of citrus and exotic fruits combine with a hint of smoke. The fresh, mineral-driven mouthfeel offers appealing fruit and acidity, finishing with a remarkable aromatic persistence. This is a lovely, expressive white, full of character and perfect for every day!
Blend: 60% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semillon

COMMENTARY: I have always maintained that plain 'ole white Bordeaux AOC are often some of wine world's best white wine values. The 2016 Petite Sirene Bordeaux Blanc is just what I am talking about! TASTING NOTES: This wine is straight-forward and good. Its aromas and flavors of dried citrus and earth call for a dozen raw oysters. (Tasted: December 10, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Petite Sirene  Winery Image

Petite Sirène was established in 2008 by the renowned Third Growth, Chateau Giscours of Margaux. Grapes are sourced from a trusted estate with exceptional terroir in Côtes de Bordeaux. The Giscours winemaking team meticulously controls every stage of the production from grape selection to bottling. To achieve final Giscours certification, each vintage undergoes a rigorous series of blind tastings that include a mix of professionals and enthusiasts alike that ensure the high standard of the Chateau is met every year.

The name Petite Sirène translates to “The Little Mermaid,” a nod to a legend surrounding Chateau Giscours. At the end of the 19th century the Cruse family had created a wine label for Chateau Giscours utilizing their coat of arms. However, in 1919 the family sold the estate to Emile Grange, who wanted to adjust the labels to reflect his own personal influence. He was contemplating how best to execute this while sitting in front of a fire at Chateau La Houringue, whose vineyards are part of Chateau Giscours now, on a damp evening when he claimed to see the outline of a siren in the flames. This vision haunted him and prompted his addition of a beautiful mermaid carrying a branch of vines (the symbol of the Médoc) to the labels. It has been considered over the years that Chateau La Houringue’s Irish roots may have played a part in this mystery. In the 1800’s Chateau La Houringue was owned by John O'Byrne, a merchant and shipper whose family was part of a group of Irish Catholic soldiers who fled English tyranny in the late 17th and early 18th centuries after their defeat. John’s ancestors had a dark past, weaved thickly with plots and conspiracies that were entangled with the Irish monarchy. These deeds allowed them to rise to become Barons of Ireland, sporting a coat of arms which coincidentally depicted a siren.
