Chateau Vignelaure La Source White 2019, 75cl
La Source de Vignelaure, AOC Côteaux d’Aix-en-Provence appellation, is an organic white cuvée with elegance and immediate balance. Compared with Château Vignelaure, the wine is drinkable earlier, both for convivial moments such as aperitif, but also with summer salads and fresh fish dishes.
A delightful blend of Vermentino (70%) Sémillon (20%) and Sauvignon Blanc (10%). Yellow with gold reflections in colour. An upfront and generously fruity nose (grapefruit & white peach) and floral (white flowers). Freshness and full-bodied in the mouth, balanced with minerality.
Food pairing: grilled or creamed white meat, fish (cod loin, whiting) seafood and scallops.
"Blend of Vermentino and Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Organic - Good southern tang and the Semillon element is interesting. Herbal streak. Lots of energy. Pretty good."
16 / 20 points.
