La Pelerine Bordeaux Blanc 2019


A classy and well-presented white Bordeaux

La Pélerine, Château de Fontenille, Bordeaux, France 2019

This is a handsomely-presented wine, I think. I have discussed the label (at some length) elsewhere but the summary is that the wine lives us to the promise of the packaging.

Here, we concern ourselves with the contents.

I will skip the vast array of technical data on the back label - it's available here if you really need to know.

It is a Sauvignon / Semillon blend in a classic, restrained Bordeaux style. As to the price, it's pretty much what I would expect for a wine of this quality.

La Pelerine Bordeaux Blanc, 2019 (£24.95, Red & White) stone fruit, lemon-lime citrus and melon with leesy-toastiness, honeysuckle and some sweet spice; full, supple and textured, waxy-yet-fresh, with saline-minerality. Poised and harmonious; very well-made, adept and elegant with a long finish.

Very good.

Drinking nicely now and can be cellared.

A substantial and versatile food wine, match with creamy past dishes or white meats.
