Chateau Barouillet - Bergerac Blanc, France (2021)
A surprising union between freshness, fullness and aromas. There is a lightly oxidative note and a bready, lees-y/nutty back palate that bounces off the fruit which is at once fresh and zesty, creamy and opulent. The Sémillon lends a touch of lime and toast to the aromatic blend. Easy, fun and just a little bit wild.

Located 50 km east from Saint-Émilion, the Barouillet family has been growing grapes for at least 8 generations in Pécharment, Monbazillac and Bergerac. Vincent Alexis, who joined his father in 2010, converted the vineyards to organic and is about to obtain the biodynamic certification.
This charming and expressive white is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris, Sémillon, and Chenin that were grown 100% sulphur free on clay & calcareous soils and the grapes are treated to a three day skin maceration prior to fermentation.
