Tasting Notes:

The 2015 Puygueraud Blanc is a blend of 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Sauvignon Gris picked at 50 hectoliters per hectare. It has a crisp and fresh grapefruit and passion fruit scented bouquet that is a sheer delight - particularly thanks to the underrated Sauvignon Gris. The palate is very fresh on the entry with crisp acidity, great tension and animation with grapefruit, melon and citrus fruit all lining up to be savored on the finish. What a lovely white Francs Côtes de Bordeaux. I expect it to land at the top of my banded score.

description Producer information Professional reviews

One name and one family have contributed to the breakthrough of the appellation: the “Thienpont tribe”. This family of negociants, originating in Oudenaarde (Flanders) also owns Vieux Chateau Certan, one of the best-known chateaus in Pomerol. The patriarch, George Thienpont, bought Chateau Puygueraud, which dominates the whole appellation, in 1946. Upon his arrival he found the vineyards in ruins and set about revitalising them through the planting of cereals and raising of cattle. It was only at the end of the 1970s that he began replanting the vineyards and in 1983, the first wine was produced. Today, the chateau produces three wines: Chateau Puygueraud, Chateau Lauriol and Cuvée George and it is one of George’s sons, Nicolas, who manages the vinification at the different properties.
