Dourthe N°1 2017 is a very enjoyable wine, with its impressive, full palette of aromas, which range from the freshness of tomato stalk to the intensity of passion fruits. The wine is rounded and bursting with fresh fruit character, with a delicious finish.
Seafood, including oysters and prawns, shellfish (moules marinières), fish-based starters (marinated salmon, ceviche, Caribbean cod fritters, fish terrine), grilled fish, foreign foods (paella, Asian cuisine), cheeses including goat cheese, Comté and St. Félicien.
Since its inception in Bordeaux in 1840, Dourthe has remained true to the values underpinning its rich and unique history: its connection to the terroir, extremely high quality standards and an innovative approach.
Grape growers at heart, Dourthe owns six chateaux within the Bordeaux region. Each estate is run by a young, dynamic team working under the overall control of Frédéric Bonnaffous, Director of Vignobles Dourthe. Their objective is to enhance the terroir and produce unique wines, the standard bearers of the appellation. The same quality standards apply to selecting the wines that make up our final blends. Thomas Drouineau, the Dourthe winemaker, works hand in hand with the growers to guarantee supplies of the finest wines, that through their care and attention, will mature gracefully in our cellars at Parempuyre.
