Elegance by Lyonnat, AOP Bordeaux Blanc, White, 2018
The Milhade family has developed this modern and graceful white Bordeaux under the Lyonnat brand to meet the demand for a chic, everyday white wine, easy to taste. A blend of Sauvignon blanc and Sémillon selected by Charlotte Milhade.
This year was marked by a warm and rainy winter that ended in a beautiful summer and a dry and sunny early autumn allowing the grapes to reach maturity. Fears due to hail episodes during the month of May which fortunately remained inconsequential.
Before direct cold pressing, the freshly harvested grapes macerate for 12 hours with the skins in the press. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentations are carried out in thermoregulated concrete tanks. Fermentation at low temperature.
Maturing on lees for 6 months in oak barrels.
Serve fresh, at about 10°C. Very pleasant to bring freshness on a hot summer day.>
A dress of a beautiful light yellow colour with golden reflections.>
At the nose
An expressive nose with aromas of citrus and white flowers.>
On the palate
Both strong and fleshy, well balanced with exotic fruit aromas (pineapple, mango) and a fresh finish with a nice length in the mouth.>
Food and wine pairings
Elegance by Lyonnat is very pleasant to drink as an aperitif, on seafood or fish.>
