Ronan by Clinet - Bordeaux Blanc
The team at Chateau Clinet have turned their winemaking skills to making a small quantity of white wine for the first time. The result is a great success – a full bodied Sauvignon - Sémillon blend, very much in the style of a good white Graves.
Sensory features: An appetising pale gold coloured wine, with a platinum glow. Mouth-watering scents of candy, boiled sweets are lifted by blossom, lime and mature white-fleshed fruits. In the mouth, the first impression comes from the fleshy, creamy texture. Then the white and zingy citrus fruits step in, seasoned by cardamone and saffron threads.
Best served: Perfect with fish, shellfish & white meats
Grape varieties: 80% Sauvignon & 20% Sémillon
Technical notes: The vineyard is situated at the highest point of the Gironde region, between Sauternes and Saint-Emilion. The location provides a fabulous view. The clay-and-limestone terroir, the orientation of the vines and the altitude (145m) combine to produce remarkable white wines. Sustainable viticulture methods are employed.
Stainless steel vats are used for the vinification and ageing with skin-contact maceration and low-temperature alcoholic fermentation (between 16 et 18°).
Alcohol content: 13.5%
