Tertre de Launay Entre Deux Mers
If you’ve never experienced a white Bordeaux wine before, you owe it to yourself to try one.
Bordeaux is blessed with poor soils loaded with gravelly rocks. This is perfect for producing the crisp, mineral laden, aromatic wines Bordeaux is famous for.
Bordeaux is typically a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle. These three grapes combine the best parts of the three: acidity, grassiness, creaminess and lush fruit.
The Tertre de Launay possesses a high proportion of the aromatic Muscadelle variety in the blend distinguishes this wine from other white Bordeaux. So much so that the Washington Post's Ben Giliberti had this to say, "If only all white Bordeaux were this good! In addition to the complex mineral and herb notes, which are not all that common in white Bordeaux, there's a rare luxurious apple/citrus lushness that just rolls across the palate. I loved it !"
