Chateau du Tertre Blanc, Margaux 2015

Ok, I know, you don't expect to see whites in a bottle like this which is your typical bordeaux Frontignan bottle, but don't let that throw you, this is exceptional wine.   

 

Chateau Du Tertre is situated near Chateau Margaux. Honeyed grapefruit, nuts, flowers, lemon peel and orange marmalade aromatics present a unique profile. Polished, fresh and vibrant, with a dominant citrus character, this is a fun, early drinker that will stump everyone in a blind tasting. From a unique blend of 42% Chardonnay, 31% Gros Manseng, 16% Viognier and 11% Sauvignon Blanc, the wine is vinified in stainless steel and barrel and aged in 100% new French oak barrels.

 

Very few people make Chardonnay wines in Bordeaux, and fewer still this far north of the traditional white making area known as Pessac and the Graves area. But one thing I can tell you is that the Bordelais know how to make wine. They talk about wine the way people in the bay area talk about tech, or the way LA people talk movies… There is a confidence in their approach and the underlying quality is always high to borderline excellent. On years such as 2000, ‘05,’09, 2010, 2015 & 2016 there is simply no substitute. Bordeaux makes white traditionally from Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Bordeaux whites are excellent pre dinner paired with white meat and fish. However, you have to chill them properly. 50F is your number and give it 5 mins after opening to air….enjoy..
