Chateau Lamothe de Haux Blanc 2010
External Reviews for Chateau Lamothe de Haux Blanc
A great buy! You can tell from the nose how super-ripe it is. Grapefruit, ginger, quince, and a whole slew of citrus oil aromas and flavors coalesce beautifully in this refreshing and vibrant Sauvignon Blanc, moving from in-your-face fruit, to tangy acidity, into a conclusive, pitch-perfect harmony. Enjoy it while itrsquo;s young and spry.
It just wouldnrsquo;t be summer without those crisp, zesty Sauvignon Blancs, but many are just too light for those die-hard Chardonnay drinkers. Enter the white Bordeaux mdash; blended with Semillon to give it more weight and richness, but still remaining super-fresh, it is the perfect compromise. Pair this one with shrimp salad, grilled sole or Italian pasta salad.
Reminiscent of springtime, this dry wine offers a fragrant bouquet of wild flowers followed by equally enticing flavors of passion fruit and key limes that finish with a clean and zesty appeal.

Crisp and refreshing without being too sharp, Chateau Lamothe Blanc is a consistently great buy. Medium- to light-bodied, the rsquo;07 is rounded and earthy from the 40% Seacute;millon blended with the Sauvignon Blanc. Fresh green pepper notes are highlighted by zesty lemon-lime on the palate. This wine was built to be served with food mdash; try pairing it with oysters or mussels with a lemon butter sauce.

Located in the hilly region of the Premieres Côtes de Bordeaux on the right bank of the Garonne river in the charming town of Haux. Château Lamothe dates back to the 16th century. The cool sandstone caves that tunnel underneath the foundation of the property accommodate the cellars, where the wine ages at an optimum 56°-60° year round. Château Lamothe has 122 acres planted in vines; their white wine plantings consist of 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Sèmillon and 20% Muscadelle. This estate-bottled wine is well-balanced, with dry, delicious flavors.
