Descriptif : Bordeaux Blanc sec

Blend : 10% Semillon and 90% Sauvignon Gris (grey)

Bright straw colour, good presentation. Bouquet of Sauvignon moderated by the roundness of the Semillon.

On the palate : the richness and the softness of the Semillon harmonises with the flavour of the Sauvignon Grey.

A feminine wine where the suppleness allows it to be consumed with dishes such as : fish, sea-food or poultry, it tastes really good with fried rice , even with fish and chips without the vinegar on the chips.
