Château Pierron Bordeaux Blanc 2018
While Bordeaux is better-known for its reds, or as the British affectionately call them, clarets, its whites are world-class too.
White wine production in Bordeaux is rather sparse, as compared with reds, and comprises roughly 11% of overall volume. But don't worry, that's still over 7 million cases of white wine!
As with the reds, Bordeaux Blanc are mostly blends. The most common variety is Sémillon, followed by Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle. Bordeaux is also home to some of the most famous dessert wines in the world, from the renowned Sauternes sub-appellation and Barsac.
The Cardarelli vineyard was created in 1953 in Massugas, between Castillon-la-Bataille and Sainte-Foy-la-Grande, by former wine sharecroppers. Since 1990, their three grandsons, supported by their wives, have managed this vast complex of 500 ha spread over several vintages.
Château Pierron Bordeaux Blanc 2018 has a floral and fruity bouquet with characteristics of Sauvignon and Sémillon. These fresh and fruity wines are characterized by their liveliness and the primary character of their aromatic range with great floral freshness and white-fleshed fruit aromas.
