Château Cantelys Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Pessac-Léognan Blanc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Hell mit grünlichem Schimmer. Angenehm frisches, fast pfeffriges Bukett, Minze, Limonen, ein Hauch Passinsfrucht und Grapefruit. Im Gaumen würzig, herrlich fliessende Textur, dabei leicht spritzig mit limettenhafter Fruchtigkeit, mineralisch-würziges Finale, setzt die Erfolgsserie dieses (noch) unbekannten «Cathiard-Crus» fort.

Granat-Rubin. Nobles Cabernetbouquet: Maulbeeren, Dörrzwetschgen, Tabakblatt und schwarzem Pfeffer. Verblüfft mit toller Eleganz und noch spürbaren, reifen Tanninen am Gaumen. Herrlicher Fruchtdruck mit leicht animalischer Note gepaart mit klassischer Pessacfrische. Ausgewogenes, rotbeeriges Finale.
