Château Lamothe de Haux Bordeaux Blanc 2 Bottle Pair 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

A dry white Bordeaux wine, made from a blend of Sauvignon Blanc 40%, Sémillon 40% and Muscadelle 20%. This blend, based on ancient tradition, is rare in Bordeaux these days. Traditional winemaking : skin contact (50%), cool fermentation (16/18°C) in vat, and barrel-ageing on the lees for about 3 weeks, which makes the wine round, smooth, and fruity. This wine is ideal as an aperitif and with fish, seafood (oysters, mussels), or goat's cheese. Best enjoyed young (within 2 years of the vintage).

Dry with a nice acidic finish. A bit taut. Tastes of a lot of grapefruit, which is not my favorite, so it was not as appealing to me.
