Dourthe No.1 Sauvignon Blanc - Bordeaux
Bottle size: 750ml
Intense and extensive aromatic spectrum. The freshness of the lemon and grapefruit zest, with delicate notes of passion fruits, is accompanied by subtle nuances of freshly cut hay. On the palate the wine is very well-balanced, concentrated in structure, revealing good acidity and a generous, full-flavoured fleshiness. The development of the aromas on the palate is characterised by a fruity freshness, which terminates in a long, lingering finish.
Seafood, including oysters and prawns, shellfish (moules marinières).
Since 1840, we have developed over the years a distinctive culture that can be defined by a special bond with the soil, team spirit, a love for the finer things and a quest for perfection. This culture forms the foundation of the Dourthe signature style, which has today become a benchmark in quality in Bordeaux.
Dourthe N°1 has a distinctive style and a strong personality, largely as a result of the global approach that no other negociant had dared to undertake until this point. Dourthe’s involvement at each step of its creation is truly pioneering. Created in 1988 from the unison of Dourthe and its most skilled partner winemakers and grape growers, Dourthe N°1 has rapidly carved its niche as a shining example of great Bordeaux wine.
Selecting only the finest plots, using grapes of irreproachable quality, applying stringent vinification methods in the Dourthe N°1 white and rosé wines whilst ageing the reds for 12 months in new French oak barrels for the red, all amount to exceptional results, acclaimed by the press and the trade alike.
