Chateau Grand Antoine Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc 2014 750ml

Chateau Grand Antoine Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc

Chateau Grand Antoine’s vineyards are located between the Dordogne and Garonne rivers in Bordeaux, France. 100% Sauvignon Blanc, Château Grand Antoine shows beautiful floral aromas with just the right amount of grassiness. On the palate the wine exhibits a fruit-driven bouquet with full-bodied flavors and a crisp finish. Best served with white meats, fish and soft cheeses.

Fresh and fruity on the nose with hints of apricot and lemon. Peach and citrus flavors on the palate make for a crisp, well-balanced wine. Food Pairings: Enjoy as an aperitif with hors d’oeuvres, or with seafood entrees.

One of the best known "international" varieties originally cultivated in France and considered the parent of, with Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon. Sauvignon's wonderfully distinctive aromatics generate some of wine's most colorful descriptors, among them "cat pee," herbaceous, grassy, citrusy the world over. In France, the apex of Sauvignon Blanc production is the Loire Valley, in the appellations of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, where the terroir expresses itself most beautifully through the grape. Sauvignon Blanc is also the leading white grape varietal in Bordeaux, where it is paired with the fatter, richer Sémillon to varying degrees. Relatively easy to cultivate, though more suited to cool climates, Sauvignon Blanc has made inroads in Europe outside of France, especially in Northeastern Italy's Friuli and Alto Adige, but also on the Slovenian border. These lovely wines are often overshadowed by Sauvignon Blanc's achievements in the New World, namely New Zealand, South Africa and California. New Zealand's Sauvignon Blancs, more conspicuously fruity than most French examples, landed the small island nation on the world wine map in the late-1980s and 1990s. South African Sauvignons are one of the most successful international varieties produced in that country and are often quite elegant and affordable. In California, Robert Mondavi managed to, almost single-handedly, created a market for Sauvignon Blanc by renaming his oak-fermented version Fumé Blanc. While some wineries still use the name, California Sauvignon Blanc has secured its place in the California wine pantheon, particularly those from the Napa Valley. Washington State, Chile and Argentina also have considerable plantings of the grape.
