Chateau Tour Chapoux Sauvignon Blanc

Chateau Tour Chapoux Sauvignon Blanc Posted on May 2, 2019Leave a comment

Bordeaux is an excellent source of Sauvignon Blanc in any of its guises.  It is, after all, the home of the grape variety! This is a wine that keeps freshness and balance at its heart and makes some of the more modern sauvignon blancs from the new world look overblown in comparison.

The generous apple, peach and orange peel fruit benefits from a whiff of lemon balm and palate takes on a green apple crunch. It is a dry, crisp and zesty white wine that has plenty of fruit on offer making it a good everyday quaffer. Serve it with fresh seafood, grilled spiced veggies or soft white cheese like ripened brie and you will see smiles all round.
