Domaine de Saint Amand's Bordeaux Blanc comes from a land that has always been famous mainly for great reds. However, in the area south of Bordeaux, on the banks of the Garonne, white grapes also express themselves very well. The label is a cuvée composed of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon, which create a perfect balance of taste, giving an intense, ripe and complex sip. It is a wine to be discovered, made in a small family domaine managed with extreme care, fully respecting the environment and following the rules of certified organic farming.
Blanc Bordeaux is produced in a small estate of quality. The Domaine de Saint Amand manages a property of only 3.2 hectares with a genuine artisanal spirit, which allows it to produce wines with a classic profile, cared for with extreme caution. The Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon grapes come from a small vineyard planted in less than one hectare located in the commune of Cambes. The vines are about 25 years old and are grown on limestone-clay soils with abundant alluvial gravel. Harvesting is done manually when the grapes are fully ripe, with picking in small crates so as not to damage the bunches. The grapes undergo a 24-hour cold pre-fermentative maceration. After soft pressing, the must is fermented in oak barrels. The wine matures for a period of 6-8 months, 50% in barriques and 50% in stainless steel tanks.
