Tasting notes

"Dare to be different! A portion of grapes affected by noble rot lends amazing honeyed peach notes" Jean-Marc Sauboua
Le Chai Winemaker

Tasting note information
Le C du Chai is typical of the exciting wines coming from Le Chai – our winemaking HQ in Castillon. It’s a modern interpretation by Jean-Marc 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. Two thirds of the Sémillon is from a vineyard in the Entre Deux Mers. The rest is late harvested, botrytised Sémillon from Bordeaux’s renowned Loupiac. This portion had the full works – fermentation in part new barrels, with five months’ ageing on its lees – but still the oak is subtle. To lend freshness and balance, some grassy Sauvignon is added. With a toasty note and lemony zing, this white is top with pork or salmon.
