Tasting note information
Le C du Chai is typical of exciting wines coming from Le Chai, our winemaking HQ in Castillon. It’s a modern interpretation of a luscious, dry, botrytised Sémillon that Tony Laithwaite made with Danish winemaker Peter Vinding-Diers 30 years ago. Peter was famous for transforming white Graves in the 1980s. On hearing about this Sémillon, Jean-Marc Sauboua at Le Chai decided to try himself. Two thirds of the grapes are from a vineyard in the Entre Deux Mers. The rest are late harvested, botrytised Sémillon from Bordeaux’s renowned Loupiac. This portion had the full works – fermentation in part new barrels, five months’ ageing on its lees – but still the oak is subtle. With a toasty note and lemony zing, this white is tops with pork or salmon.
