WSI93 The Espirit de Saint-Sulpice Bordeaux Blanc is marked by a complex aroma and flavor suggestive of limes, honeysuckle, mangoes, and pineapples. Carefully blended, the wine is dry yet full flavored, mineral and long on the finish. This delicious dry white can be served as an aperitif or as a perfect complement to shellfish, seafood, salads, and white meats. 80% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Semillon.
The 145-acre Château Saint-Sulpice estate is situated in the eponymous village in northern Entre-Deux-Mers, just south of St. Emilion and 14 miles northeast of the city of Bordeaux. The property is planted mainly with Merlot and is very carefully tended by owner-winemaker Pierre Dubergé and his son Christophe. Their spotless cellar has been recently modernized, including a battery of stainless steel tanks. Made with the same methods of utmost quality as those used to produce classified growth Bordeaux, Château Saint-Sulpice represents an extraordinary value and rare quality. This delicious dry white wine is a personal selection by Christophe Duberge, owner and winemaker at Château Saint Sulpice.
Terroir: For 300 years, the Dubergé family has grown wines with care and passion, uniting the best traditions of Bordeaux with a modern sensibility. The family vineyards are located in the northern reaches of the Entre-Deux-Mers where soils and climate are almost identical to the neighboring appellations of Saint-Emilion and Pomerol.
Vinification: Esprit de Saint-Sulpice is vinified at low temperature (between 64 and 68 degrees Fahrenheit) to preserve all of the wines’ freshness, vivacity and natural delicacy. 12.5% ABV
