Precise quality management
The Bordeaux appellation area is undeniably one of France's most famous wine-growing regions, and its terroirs enable excellent expression of Sauvignon Blanc's varietal aromas. This is a very well-known grape variety that is used to make fine white wines. With its aromatic and mineral character, it makes elegant, complex wines.
Maison Castel know-how
Maison Castel's winemakers work with a long-term partner in this region and oversee each step of the vinification process. Their expertise in this specific area allows them to carefully choose certain parcels, according to strict specifications: they closely follow the grape ripening process with the desired wine in mind and choose the must accordingly. Vinification is carried out in a specific way, to reveal all the varietal aromas of Sauvignon: cold settling, racking as appropriate, fermentation at controlled temperature. Ageing is done on the lees with stirring to give the wine freshness and length.
