Tasting Notes

This Bordeaux is a blend of the Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. A fuller-bodied dry white wine that stands out thanks to the depth of it's aromas, texture and body. The richness is no doubt from the ripe Sémillon fruit, the freshness and aromas due to the Sauvignon Blanc. Lively on the palate and remarkably pure. The Hubert family settled at the Château Peybonhomme-Les-Tours in the village of Cars in 1895, and six generations have followed since.

A fitting match-up with roasted whole fish and Greek-style vinaigrette.

For white Bordeaux, only three varieties are permitted:...
