Dourthe confirms its resolutely classic Bordeaux style with the Dourthe N°1 Sauvignon Blanc 2014.
Choosing premium quality Sauvignon blanc…
Loyally committed to producing fine, dry aromatic Bordeaux blanc wines, for the 2014 vintage, Dourthe has remained fully implicated in the Bordeaux vineyards in order to select the finest Sauvignon blanc terroirs and reveal the true purity and aromatic complexity of Dourthe N°1.
The complementary nature of the soils in Bordeaux – Dourthe’s ever improving savoir-faire
More than 25 years’ experience since the launch of the inaugural vintage of Dourthe N°1 in 1988 have resulted in identifying the very best terroirs capable of enhancing Sauvignon’s diverse expression. Sauvignon Blanc cultivated on sandy-clay offers citrus and tropical fruit profiles, combining intensity and exuberance. On clay-limestone soils, the grapes develop lemon notes, freshness, minerality and concentration on the palate, creating elegant and distinguished wines.
Dourthe N°1 2014, fruit, minerality and freshness
Dourthe N°1 2014 is elegant, lively and wonderfully fresh. Pronounced citrus fruit aromas of grapefruit and lemon intermingle with passion fruit fragrances on the nose, while mineral notes enhance the rich aromatic spectrum. Complex floral flavours and appealing refreshing verve culminate in a long, zesty finish.
Dourthe N°1 2014, perfect match with seafood and cheeses
Dourthe N°1 Sauvignon is ideal with seafood, including oysters and prawns, shellfish (moules marinières), fish-based starters (marinated salmon, ceviche, Caribbean cod fritters, fish terrine), grilled fish, exotic foods (paella, Asian cuisine), cheeses including goat cheese, Comté and St. Félicien.
