Dourthe La Grande Cuvée - Sauvignon Blanc

AOC Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc

Dourthe La Grande Cuvée - Sauvignon Blanc-SM

Dourthe La Grande Cuvée white is made entirely from Sauvignon blanc, whose rich, aromatic character is backed by great structure. Dourthe selects grapes from diverse terroirs located to the north and east of the appellation, resulting in a palette of Sauvignon blanc aromas unparalleled in Bordeaux. The aromatic richness is enhanced by a highly specific vinification process, fine-tuned more than 20 years ago, consisting in maceration on the skins and low temperature fermentation. The wine is then aged on the fine lees, with batonnage, for 6 months, which strengthens the harmony of the wine and optimises the finesse and intensity of the resulting aromas.

Vinification & Ageing

Tasting notes

100% Sauvignon blanc, this impressive Dourthe La Grande Cuvée 2019 dry white is a citrus fruit explosion of lemon and grapefruit aromas intermingled with hints of minerality. Initially linear on the palate, the wine develops attractive, generous fruity flavours, fresh and lingering, underpinned by the typical poise of Sauvignon grown on limestone, which is increasingly more important in the blend. This fresh, very well balanced wine culminates in a long, aromatic finish.

COUP de COEUR

Un sauvignon 100% cuve inox c'est l'assurance d'une expression préservée, ici autour de parfums d'agrumes et de fleurs de sureau. Un court élevage sur lies a donné une épaisseur bienvenue en bouche. L'ensemble donne un profil gourmand et très équilibré qui met en exergue l'expression pure du cépage. Les fruits de mer et les fromages de chèvre seront des compagnons de choix.

Tasting notes

Crafted entirely from Sauvignon Blanc, the 2018 La Grande Cuvée Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc blanc is an elegant, aromatic and full-flavoured white wine. Pronounced citrus fruit aromas of lemon and grapefruit jostle with compelling mineral notes. The same characters are echoed on the appealingly generous palate, underpinned by lovely poise typical of Sauvignon cultivated on limestone, which leaves a lasting impression on the 2018 blend. Wellbalanced and refreshing, the wine culminates in a long, aromatic finish.

A riot of ripe tropical fruit on the nose with mangoes and melon, as well as guava. The palate has a fresh, lively feel with a crisp, bright and refreshing finish.

**= Vin remarquable. Cette cuvée synthétise aux yeux du jury tout ce que l'on est en mesure d'attendre d'un bordeaux blanc : un nez frais, net et précis d'agrumes, de fleurs blanches et de pêche, une bouche franche et alerte, à la longue finale typée par les agrumes. Un travail superbe.

A travers ses cuvées phare qui portent haut les couleurs du Bordelais ou les châteaux qu'elle amène au sommet de leur appellation, Dourthe est une maison à la signature sûre. Sa cuvée phare, déclinée dans les trois couleurs, est le Dourthe N°1, veritable archétype du bon Bordeaux. Elle possède également plusieurs propriétés importantes, comme Pey La Tour, dans l'Entre-deux-Mers, La Garde, en Pessac-Léognan, et le cru classé du Haut-Médoc, Belgrave. Reprise par le Champenois Alain Thiénot, elle n'a en rien modifié sa philosophie d'action.

Regal

Un nez volubile aux parfums d'agrumes et de fruits verts, une bouche tonique avec un soupçon de rondeur pour le confort: rien à redire et du plaisir, encore plus avec des sushis et des sardines grillées.

Le seul sauvignon est à l'oeuvre dans ce Bordeaux généreux en arômes de fleurs blanches, d'agrumes confits et de fruits exotiques. En bouche: du fruit, de la fraîcheur, du volume et une texcture fine. Un ensemble expressif et élégant.

BEST BUY. Dourthe's 100% Sauvignon Blanc is lively and crisp—a light, bright wine. With its strong citrus flavors, lemon and tangerine, touched by spice, it is balanced and fruity. The texture gives a herbal edge that is attractive and refreshing.

(90/100) 100% Sauvignon Blanc. A stalwart from Dourthe. Aged on fine less for six months with some battonage, this is an exotic, tropical style of Sauvignon Blanc with lifts of bright, zesty, grapefruit acidity on the crisp palate. Great character.
