Dourthe Grand Terroirs Sauvignon Blanc
Ideally situated on the 45th parallel, the Bordeaux appellation benefits from a moderate climate. Due to the large area they cover, the Bordeaux vineyards are set on very diverse grounds.
Founded in 1840, Dourthe now sets the standard in winemaking in Bordeaux. Vineyards Dourthe is comprised of nine estates - all elevated to the very heights of their respective appellations - while the continued success of the Dourthe wines reflects its daring approach and uncompromising quality policy.
Adorned in its brilliant, pale green-yellow hue, Dourthe Grands Terroirs Sauvignon boasts a delicate bouquet of fruit and floral aromas. Lively and harmonious on the finish. This white stands apart for its intensely aromatic bouquet of citrus fruits and white flowers. Its nervy attack leads on to a well balanced palate. [www.dourthe.com]
