Château Molhière cuvée Pierrot blanc 2015 (AOC Côtes de Duras)

Côtes de Duras is a wine region halfway between the vineyards of Bordeaux and the South-West. From the first it takes its oceanic encépagement, and from the second its quality-price ratio. This label, which was founded in 1937, produces mainly red wine but can also produce rosé, dry white and sweet white. The climate, temperate and slightly rainy, is ideal for Sauvignon blanc and Sémillon varieties. Do you think this wine washed down a wedding banquet in France?

Logical lemon yellow color in a vintage uncorked eight years later. On the nose, the herbal character of White Sauvignon appears first, which in its evolved version takes shape in notes of cat pee and citrus fruit (citrus limon, citrus aurantifolia...). Dry entry in the mouth. The development is reminiscent of a barrel-aged white, which mixes delicious herbs with other spicy notes. Its silky and elegant texture stands out. Finish still dry and with superior persistence.

Elizabeth and Patrick Blancheton offer us a price of 9.50 euros that includes the raisonnée struggle in the vineyard and a lot of passion. This area of France is a place to get lost in, and one that many English citizens choose to escape the island hell. I was able to get to know this place thanks to my stage atDomaine La Belle. As a pairing, a good French cheese from the south-west: try the trappe d'Échourgnac, matured in the Dordogne province with a nutty perfume. Plaisir des dieux!
