Chateau de France Passac Leognan

Bees wax, honey, peach and apricot aromas.
 
Strong palate with good balance in terms of fat and acidity. The spicy aromas reappear with peppery flavours that are rare for a white wine.  Intense finish.   Bordeaux, France Grapes:  80% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Semillon Food Match:  White fish   A neighbouring estate to Château Fieuzal on the terrace of Léognan, Château de France has always projected immense potential, but it wasn't until Ile­de France spirits distiller Bernard Thomassin purchased this 100 acre estate in 1971 that a proper course was charted for success as he methodically replanted the vineyard and restored and upgraded the cellar.
In 1987 the INAO designated Léognan and nine other communes as the new Pessac­Léognan appellation and included Château de France among its 60 elevated northern Graves estates. The wines are now receiving comparable and in some cases more glowing reviews to those of the appellation leaders costing from three­ to ­ten times the price (and beyond).
