Tasting Notes

In 1998, Corinne and Jean-Michel Comme began a venture in the aristocratic regions of Bordeaux, in the outlying Sainte-Foy, becoming one of the region’s first organic properties.

Staff Pick Notes

St. Foy is in the eastern portion of Bordeaux actually very close to Bergerac. The Comme family came to this area from Italy over a century ago.

Its rare to find a wood aged white that I actually like apart from very expensive white Burgundy. Here the combination of large old wooden barrels and extended lees ageing gives this wine a wonderful texture without losing acidity or slipping into being oaky. Citrus fruit and white flowers meld for a classic white bordeaux that I would definitely recommend.
