Tasting Profile

Look:

Beautiful almost honey yellow in the center of the glass.

Smell:

Lovely aromatics of just ripened white peach and apricot mingle with sweet lemongrass, lime leaf, a touch of honeycomb, river rock minerality, and a subtle undercurrent of herbal notes.

Taste:

Very bright and crisp on the palate, with just-ripened fruit flavors of Anjou pear, honeydew melon, and white peach laid overtop lime zest, orange oil, sweet vanilla, zesty citrus rind, and a gravelly minerality.

Finish:

Easy drinking and incredibly smooth, with flavors that beautifully coat the mouth and a touch of acidity at the very end.

Pairing:

A garlic-seasoned prawn and asparagus puff pastry.

What the Winery Says

Fruity nose dominated by aromas of grapefruit and relayed by scents of white peach. Creamy mouth, with a delicate balance between fresh fruit and acidity, typical of Sauvignon.

Baron des Chartrons Bordeaux Blanc is perfect with seafood, spicy chicken wings, and pizzas, and also stands well for enjoyment on its own.

About the Winery

Chartrons were 18th century Bordeaux wine merchants from the Médoc, an ideal trade region on the left bank of the Garonne River. The Garonne was the most historically strategic route for shipping wines from northern Spain and southwest France to the Great Atlantic. The Barons, families who owned properties throughout the region, invested their fortunes and lives in growing southwest France to become the pace-setting region of winemaking for the entire world. Through Baron des Chartrons, Maison Duhard invites you to discover this great history of Médoc, and the grandeur of Bordeaux.
