Crafted entirely from Sauvignon Blanc, the 2018 Dourthe N°1 blanc is an elegant, aromatic and full-flavoured white wine. Pronounced citrus fruit aromas of lemon and grapefruit jostle with compelling mineral notes. The same characters are echoed on the appealingly generous palate, underpinned by lovely poise typical of Sauvignon cultivated on limestone, which leaves a lasting impression on the 2018 blend. Well-balanced and refreshing, the wine culminates in a long, aromatic 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 nine 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.
