Vintage 2013: Silver Medal at the Concours Of Bruxelles 2014
The white wine of Château du Taillan is called La Dame Blanche, and is made solely from the Sauvignon Blanc, making it a single-variety wine. It already has a well established reputation.
The white grapes are harvested by hand and usually put into stainless steel vats towards the end of September, at a temperature of around 18°C.
La Dame Blanche is a very fruity wine, with citrus aromas and, in certain years, exotic fruits. The wine has a soft and rounded texture, making it a charming wine, but very different to most Sauvignon Blanc we know today. It can be enjoyed either as an appetiser, or with seafood.
The name of the wine derives from a local legend, but you will have to come to the Château and ask about it yourself.
The wine’s greatest asset is its freshness and it can be tasted within the next two years.
