2019 Château Le Sèpe Entre-Deux-Mers Bordeaux Blanc
The white vineyards of Château le Sèpe are located in Sainte-Radegonde near to the Saint-Emilion vineyards in the heart of Entre-deux-Mers. The residence belonged to the Knights Templar, and was reorganised in the 17th and 18th centuries.
The vines are planted in a clay and calcareous soil and can be found around 100 meters above the river bed of the Dordogne. "At high altitudes" this helps the vines to avoid the harmful effects of the fog that often penetrates the banks of the river. It also provides a natural ventilation of the vines and therefore no chemical intervention takes place and no anti-botrytis treatment is required. At Chateau Le Sèpe, every effort is made to make the wine especially in the vineyard, so with a manual aggressive pruning (read thinning) and this is mainly done at the top and side of the vineyard facing the rising sun state. This reinforces the positive effects of ventilation. No further chemical products are used. The harvest takes place at night to maintain the coolness of the fruit intended for the barrel and we could continue for a while but it makes clear that people consciously opt for the natural cultivation of the fruit and then less yield and this in contrast to the many mass-driven producers. The Chateau has also completely switched to bio-dynamic viticulture and will be certified very soon.
The white bordeaux Le Sèpe is a blend of 75% Sauvignon and a little Muscadelle and Pinot Gris. The Pinot Gris has been added since 2017 and makes this very attractive bordezux even more complex. The wine aged for 9-12 months in French oak barrels. The wine in the glass is clear and inviting. The wine is nicely dry with nice aromas of citrus and exotic fruit. In the mouth the wine has a slight bitterness in the mouth and an excellent acidity which makes the wine also very popular in gastronomy and the white wine from Château le Sèpe can be enjoyed as an aperitif, with fish, seafood, poultry in sauce, soft cheeses . Only 5,600 bottles of this beautiful (and still affordable) wine are made every year and is a wine that can be stored in the cellar for a number of years without any problem and will improve afterwards.
