Food Pairings for Château Lamothe De Haux Red Bordeaux Blend Premières Côtes De Bordeaux
A blend of Sauvignon Blanc (40%), Sémillon (40%), and Muscadelle (20%), but the SB dominates the blend. Lemon/lime nose with strong acidity on the palate, along with grass on the short finish. Full bodied and not at all shy. I tend to like acidic wines but this is a bit sour, probably would be better with a few more months in the bottle. Still nice as the weather gets warmer.
Peaches, mangoes and lemon flavors on the nose, before leading to a nice minerality, counter balanced with sweet florals (honeysuckle) and lychee flavors. Crisp on the finish, well balanced.
Citrus, peach and honeysuckle. Crisp, acidic and refreshing.
Beautiful citrus peach -crisp . Some tartness but refreshing
This wine has a nice lemon/lime nose, citrus palate- very crisp with a medium body and good acidity.
I totally thought this was 100% Sauvignon Blanc. According to the internet (so you know it's true) the blend is: 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semillon, and 20% Muscadelle. The Sauvignon Blanc does rule the glass for the most part. It's flavors are out in the front: ripe tropical fruit. Grass. Cat pee. But underneath and on the finish is something a little different. I just took a shower, so it's not me, but I swear there is almost a body odor note underneath it... not in a bad way. A sweaty smell. Also, there is an odd "grapey" note on the nose. Is that Muscadelle? Interesting wine. Initially, this wine tastes like 100% Sauvignon Blanc, but give it some time to open up and the other grapes start to show.
This is a nice Sauv Blanc -- good nose with citrus predominately, with some floral and just a bit of cat pee (about as much as I can reasonably accept in wine). The real reward comes on the palate where this wine is tart, sharp and not overwhelmingly full mineral. There might be a touch of honey as the previous reviewer mentioned, but I didn't really get it. Crisp finish, though. With regards to food pairing, I had it alone but I can see it standing up well to something creamy. Sherry-Lehmann has this one in stock often.
External Reviews for Château Lamothe De Haux Red Bordeaux Blend Premières Côtes De Bordeaux
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.
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.
The high percentage (40%) of Sémillon softens this wine, making it supple and round without losing the crispness of the Sauvignon Blanc. Bright tangerine and telltale gooseberry notes are balanced with honeysuckle and melon.
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 it's young and spry.
Reminiscent of springtime, this dry Sauvignon Blanc-based white offers a fragrant bouquet of wild flowers, followed by enticing flavors of passion fruit and key lime that finish with a clean and zesty blast.
A toast to the summer! This clear, straw-colored white Bordeaux blend of mainly Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes is sure to captivate the crowd on your patio this summer. The nose is complex with beautiful notes of lemony citrus, apple, pear and plenty of minerals. Medium-bodied and clean, it possesses a harmonious balance of ripeness and acidity that passes through the palate, laying a foundation for a long, mouth-watering finish. Pair this extraordinary value tonight with a shrimp Caesar or light chicken dish and your dinner party is sure to be a success.
(Barrel sample) This wine is fresh, layered with some attractive lightweight botrytis and delicate fruit. What it offers in accessibility it lacks in concentration, and will age fairly quickly.
