Château Puyanché Blanc sec 2010
AOC Francs, Côtes de Bordeaux
Joseph has employed the winemaker of the prestigious Graves property, Château Carbonnieux, to act as a consultant winemaker and the results are superb.

The wine is made from 50 year old vines, using the classic Graves blend of 65% Sauvignon Blanc and 35% Semillon. The vinification is started in stainless steel, and then the wine is transferred to oak barriques where it continues its fermentation. Battonage is used to maximise lees contact, enhancing the texture of the wine.  It is pale lemon in colour with a juicy, exotic-fruit nose and just a hint of oak. On the palate it has beautiful mouthfeel with superb mango and pineapple flavours, crisp acidity and good length. There is surprising complexity and it is the match for many a much more expensive White Graves. Perfect now, but will last and develop in complexity over the next five years.
