Wine Despagne, Biface Blanc, 2019
A classic Bordeaux white blend that combines the best of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. The wine perfectly captures the natural acidity of Sauvignon Blanc and the fuller character of a Semillon.
White - A well-balanced wine that has crisp fruit, great acidity, and currently in its prime.
The wine offers explosive citrus notes, like grapefruit, lemon, and lime. The nose also offers vibrant apple and pear notes. The crisp acidity is balanced out with riper fruit like peaches, pineapple, and a saline finish on the palate.
The wine’s lightness makes it ideal for pairing with vegetarian dishes, pork, lean fish, or poultry.
The vineyards are affected by the ocean and two rivers. The soils are limestone-rich and add significantly to the wine's minerality.
The grapes are mechanically harvested, macerated on their skins, and undergo gentle pressing. The wines are often left for months on the lees to add to the body.
The Tour de Mirambeau château is the historical Despagne estate, and it has been passed down through eight generations.
