AOP Bordeaux Blanc

Château d'Haurets 2018

€360 Flacon de 10cl

This pale lemon-gold coloured white Bordeaux is a lively and fruity wine with a very citrussy nose. The palate is dry with a nice bite and flavours of green apple and yuzu. Château d’Haurets will pair brilliantly with grilled fish, like salmon or sea bream, thanks to a great combination of roundness and vivacity.

Winemaker

Jérémy Ducourt

Since 1958, the Ducourt family has developed their winegrowing holding and constitutes one of the biggest wineries of Bordeaux with 12 châteaux and 440 acres of vineyards, including the Haurets Château. In the beginning, a modest agricultural farm, the small establishment expanded and subsequently became the family’s place of residence. Continuing the work begun by his elders, Jonathan Ducourt, in charge of the commercial activity, explained the history of the Château d’Haurets to us. Located in Ladaux at a few hundreds meters from the vinification cellars, the vineyard completely surrounds the Château and its mill. The property benefits from a fresh terroir with a dominant feature of clay-limestone soil.
