Chateau Argadens Bordeaux Blanc 2012

Chateau Argadens Bordeaux Blanc 750ml 2012   
Sku: 1841507

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

The original name of this property, parts of which date back to the 12th and 16th centuries, was La Salle d’Argadens. It became Chateau Argadens in 2002, when it was bought by Maison Sichel. Covering 45 hectares of clay-limestone soil in a single plot, Argadens is superbly well situated on one of the highest hills of the rolling Entre-Deux-Mers region (one of the five highest points, in fact, of the Gironde). The vineyard is thus extremely well drained and extremely well exposed to the sun and the air. Sichel’s aim in acquiring Argadens was quite simply to see it express the full potential of its wonderful terroir and become one of the benchmark properties in the Bordeaux Superieur category. To achieve this, the company has invested heavily in terms of finance, time and technology and the resulting wines exhibit greater complexity and depth than ever before.

Tasting notes
Pale yellow with a green rim, crisp and powerful nose with citrus and floral aromas mingling with rose and passionfruit. A chewy, ample palate with refreshing acidity and a harmonious, lingering finish.

Technical notes
Produced in very small quantities, this blend Semillon and Sauvignon from 30 year old vines, harvested at optimal maturity. The musts are protected from oxidation by inert gas during prefermentation maceration and fermented in new oak barrels. The wines remain on full lees for 3-4 weeks with stirring two or three times weekly before being racked and held for two to three months on fine lees with weekly stirring. They are then racked again, blended, and fined and cold stabilized before being bottled.
