Tony Laithwaite has long wanted to make an estate white at La Clarière, but traditionally Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux is all about reds. Now, with some top vineyards he's crafted this four Golds, oak fermented, lees aged white. Citrusy and long.

Lying on Bordeaux’s Right Bank, Castillon is known for its clarets. Indeed the appellation may only produce red wines, but that hasn’t stopped the team at Château La Clarière wanting to make a white of equally fine standing. So they planted two vineyards on the estate, on terroir particularly suited to white grapes, with both Sauvignons Gris and Blanc, and have been reaping the awards ever since. A Trophy and four Golds last vintage and another four Golds for the 2020. Blended from bright Sauvignon Blanc and richer Sauvignon Gris, oak fermented, lees stirred, then aged in part-new oak barrels, it's reminiscent of the grand wines of Pessac Léognan. Drink now with sauced white meat or fish. Or cellar to allow layers of complexity to develop.
