Profile

Smell

Sauvignon Blanc's typical exuberance is at the fore on the nose of this expressive white, with aromas of gooseberry, white grapefruit, and granny smith apple. Floral elements emerge as the wine gets a bit of air, along with hints of lemongrass, fresh herbs, and lemon zest.

Taste

This wine is spring in a glass, with plenty of bright citrus flavours of grapefruit and lime, along with tart apple and riper melon and peach. The Sauvignon Blanc contributes fresh acidity and a stony minerality, which is balanced out by the richer, rounder contributions of Sémillon and Muscadelle's telltale floral notes. The finish is long, dry, and mouth-wateringly delicious - an open bottle won't last long!

Pairing

Chateau Gantonnet Blanc's balanced acidity is the perfect contrast to a creamy seafood linguine, but it would also pair beautifully with the herb-forward flavours of chicken souvlaki with homemade tzatziki.

Aromas and Flavours

Apple

From Granny Smith to Red Delicious, apple makes for a delightfully crisp aroma.

A romantic picnic in the orchard, with your partner and their favourite white wine.

Description

Returning favourite alert! We first featured this stellar white Bordeaux in the 2017 vintage, and it's once again an exclusive for WineCollective members. If you're not familiar with the dry white wines of Bordeaux, you're not alone: less than 10% of the region's production is white, so very little of it makes it onto shelves in our market. It's a style that's well worth seeking out, and this example from historic Chateau Gantonnet is a great introduction! Sauvignon Blanc, Muscadelle, and Sémillon are the permitted white grape varieties of Bordeaux, and this wine is a blend of all three. Lovers of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc will recognize a hint of the grape's signature citrus and grassiness, but blending with Muscadelle and Sémillon adds dimensions unique to Bordeaux.

Located in the subregion of Entre-Deux-Mers (literally "between two seas," after the two tidal rivers that border the region), Chateau Gantonnet has been producing estate-bottled cuvées since the 19th century. Historic without being stuffy, complex while remaining approachable, the wines of Chateau Gantonnet are testament to the enduring appeal of Bordeaux. Enjoy this dry, elegant white at about 10 C over the next 2-3 years.
