A blend of 95% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Semillon. Sourced from sustainable farming and fermented without oak to preserve the underlying expression of its classic terroir, this is Sauvignon Blanc as channeled through the unique prism of Bordeaux. With its cleansing acidity and flavors of citrus and melon, it possesses the deeper texture, elegance, and richness of body that are the region’s hallmarks.
According to winemaker Jean Marc, part of that depth also results from the small touch of Sémillon (the region’s “other” white grape) he includes in the blend, which imparts a certain “je ne sais quoi” that immediately conjures white Bordeaux.
Mas de Gourgonnier Les Baux de Provence
A blend of Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Carignan grapes and the color of ripe cherries. On the nose, scrub land awakens our senses, rosemary and dry grass marry perfectly. A richly flavored red with plush red/black fruits and peppery spice. The tannins are velvety in the mouth and gives the wine an elegance. The fresh licorice associated with the cherry make this wine balanced and pleasant.
Certified Organic, all wines produced as Mas de Gorgonnier are made without chemical fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides. Few other Provençal reds can match the power and grace of this bottle (its form a traditional Normandy “Calvados” shape that only Gourgonnier uses).
