A Jewel from Entre-Deux-Mers

 

Literally translating to “between two seas”, Entre-Deux-Mers is the largest region within Bordeaux. Located on the Right Bank, it is the area between the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers.

In the heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers appellation, Château Martinot benefits from an unmatched situation on clay-limestone hilltops dominating the Dordogne River, a few kilometers from Saint-Emilion. Since 1790, this family-owned estate has passed from mother to daughter for seven generations. The current manager has collected part of her inspiration from trips to California vineyards, e.g. her cement vats for a thermo-regulated wine cellar. Her wine shows off freshness and delicious fruit aromas: nose with pear and white flowers notes, a vivacious palate start with a supple evolution; fresh final with notes of lime, grapefruit and acacia flowers.

– mother to daughter tradition
– great location of the estate
– simplicity and elegance
– sustainable viticulture and minimal intervention

Cheers to an excellent, well-priced Sauvignon Blanc/Sémillon blend from Bordeaux!
