Chateau de Castelnau Entre-Deux-Mers Blanc 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Sauvignon Blanc 40%, Semillon 40%, Muscadelle 20% Tight and waxy on the nose with subtle hints of red fruit, clay earth, and leathery dried herbs. Bright on entry, this shows some serious richness and volume in the mouth. Just a lovely mouthfeel, rich but bright delivering subtle fruit flavors that range from quince to gooseberry, white cherry and pithy sweet grapefruit. There’s a hint of minerality here but this is a pretty fruit driven wine, if not frooty. The highlight here is that supple mouthfeel that gains a hint of astringent mouth grab on the finish making this a wonderful food wine. Terrific little bottle of wine. 87pts
