is a white-wine grape from western France, now successfully grown in emerging and established wine regions all over the world. While the grape may be more readily associated with the Loire Valley (for its role in Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume), it is more likely to have originated from Bordeaux, where it is typically blended with Semillon. In the late 20th Century, a new region began to gain a reputation as one of the great Sauvignon Blanc regions of the world: Marlborough, at the northern tip of New Zealand's South Island. Outside France and New Zealand, the variety has been relatively successful in New World regions such as California, Chile and South Africa. It can be grown in relatively cool climates while its naturally high acidity allows it to retain freshness even in warmer areas. Classic Sauvignon Blanc aromas range from grass, nettles, blackcurrant leaf and asparagus to green apples and gooseberries. It gives usually refreshing and mineral dry wines.
is a golden-skinned grape used to make dry and sweet white wines, mostly in France and Australia. Semillon’s homeland is undoubtedly south-west France, not just Bordeaux but the many surrounding wine regions such as Bergerac. It is an ingredient with Sauvignon Blanc in both basic Bordeaux Blanc and the great, dry, oaked whites of Graves and Pessac-Léognan. It gives the longest-living wines in the world in the Sauternes vineyards, where the influences of the rivers, the sun and the ocean allow to develop the noble rot to concentrate its berries in sugar, giving honeyed, rich sweet wines. Other sweet wines on the fringes of Sauternes which owe much to Semillon include Barsac, Loupiac, Cérons and Ste Croix du Mont.
In 1897, Fernand Ginestet founds 'Ginestet & Co, and settles on the symbolic Quais de Bacalan in Bordeaux. Demonstrating true entrepreneurial vision, Fernand Ginestet applies himself to uniting its interests of viticulture and trade.He pioneers what is today called the 'Interprofession Bordelaise', by creating the 'Estate and Trade Union', which in 1948 becomes the Bordeaux Wine Council.
This dry white Bordeaux has a clear, slightly silver colour. The nose is powerful, with floral and exotic fruits being the most prominent notes. Its roundness in the mouth is enhanced by a delicate acidity, making it most refreshing.
