Tasting Notes

  Like a well-maintained vintage car, this simply oozes class and elegance. The nose is almost coquettish, with poached plums with star anise and orange peel, a hint of wood smoke, gravel and graphite, leading into a palate with more damson fruit, a little tobacco and scents of old leather bound books and "a point" tannins. Well-structured and with majestic length and finish. So smart and so appealling.

More Info

Part of a new breed of Bordeaux producer that breaks the mould of the famous Bordeaux chateaux. Maison Blanche are located in Montagne-Saint-Emilion, one of the most picturesque bits of the Libournais on Bordeaux's right bank, has been biodynamic since well before it became fashionable. Demeter-certified since 2013, Maison Blanche produces some of the most deliciously classical, low-intervention, low-sulphur Bordeaux wines on the market, wines of place that are quite atypical in a region widely regarded to have become a winemaking factory beholden to chemical fertilisers and pesticides without any justifiable claim to terroir identity.
