"…and has loads going on… All that fruit, weight, interest and texture for under £10… wow! Brilliant" writes a customer. £9.95 a bottle.
The back label: 'Les Demoiselles d’honneur are the bridesmaids, and this dry white is a marriage of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon from vines that surround the château. Lovely on its own or pair it with lighter dishes, salads, fish or chicken.'
The last few cases - we found these at the chateau - of our popular Sauvignon-Sémillon from the fine 2016 vintage. Now coming to the end of its drinking window, as of mid-2020, but it's still a round, peachy and tasty drop. The photo of the label has a small typo - it's Les Demoiselles!
Volume discounts for wines in unmixed cases: a total of 6 x 6-bottle cases = 5%, 12 x 6 = 7.5%. Ends 14 July.

"What I liked about this wine was its crystal clear, particularly precise, piercing nose followed by attractive smokiness and good palate weight. In fact this has so much extract (no excessive yields here) that there is just a tiniest hint of the oiliness of some white Graves, but it rises above this to be a thoroughly fine dry white bordeaux (and it’s much cheaper than most white Graves)… It would make a lovely wine at the table. Excellent value.”
