Bordeaux is the largest vineyard for appellation wines in the whole of France. Situated in the South West near the Atlantic, it is crossed by the rivers Garonne and Dordogne and enjoys a temperate maritime climate. The richness, the quality and the diversity of its wines derive from the particular character of the terroirs, the experience of the winegrowers and the art of blending. Wines of the Bordeaux Sec appellation combine the fruit of the Sauvignon with the roundness of Sémillon in a well-balanced blend. A regional appellation covering the entire vineyard zone of the Gironde department.

Château Chaubinet, located close to the town of Espiet, has been in the Fossat family for several generations. Espiet was until quite recently an industrial town, with a cement works. The area has a rich history, notably with two mills dating from the 14th century. Today brothers Pierre and Jean-Michel Fossat are in charge of the estate.

Alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature until the sugar is used up, to provide a dry wine, in the presence of yeasts selected according to the required profile. Ageing on fine lees.

Serve at between 10 and 12°C as an aperitif or to accompany fish or soft cheeses.

tasting

Pale yellow colour with green reflections. Sauvignon on the nose with citrus and floral notes. Lively and aromatic on the palate, slightly sappy (fat). Long finish. Good balance for this elegant wine, dominated by fresh fruit and a mineral note.
