Tasting Notes: Beautiful pale yellow colour. Very concentrated, round, rich, and wonderfully vivacious on the palate, with mineral overtones. After quick fermentation, Sauvignon Blanc displays intense aromas of citrus and blood orange, whereas Semillon and Muscadelle show floral (rose) and fruity (white peach) overtones. Menthol nuances maintain the beautiful freshness and contribute to a long, pleasant aftertaste. A great year for dry white wines truly representative of Bordeaux.
Galaxy Notes: Assemblage: 61% Sauvignon Blanc, 32% Sémillon, 7% Muscadelle. Grapes sourced primarily from Graves & Pessac-Leognan. It features all the complexity and mystery of its illustrious cousins. Clarendelle Blanc is a fine blend of two traditional grape varieties, Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc, as well as a touch of Muscadelle in certain vintages.
