Pierre Angulaire Blanc, Michele D'Aprix 2019 (Bordeaux, France)

Our friend Michele D'Aprix describes her wine for us.

Straw bright yellow in glass, aromatic is citrus and honey followed by the stony dry minerality of Sauvingnon Blanc, tempers by a dash of Semillion which gives it roundness, pleasure on the palate...

In an effort to quench my literal and professional thirst for white wine in Bordeaux, I have now arrived in the Pellegrue sector, near the commune of Landerrouat, in the heart of Entre-Deux-Mers. My mentor and friend, Stephane Derenoncourt, started this project in four gravelly-clay and limestone parcels that are harvested by
hand, and vinified separately, employing a slow press and temperature controlled fermentations via wild yeast, in stainless steel tanks.
