Blanc de Grand Renouil 2011, Bordeaux
Producer: Michel Ponty
Grape variety: Sauvignon, Sémillon
Colour / Type: White wine
Blanc de Grand Renouil is a rarity. In 1986, Michel Ponty found this perfect, tiny vineyard that was said to produce white wine centuries ago. That’s when he decided to produce the first white wine in Canon Fronsac, a place where only reds are traditionally allowed.
With less than 3000 bottles produced annually, it can be difficult to get hold of Blanc de Grand Renouil before it is sold out, but it is worth it. In this wine we use a traditional Bordeaux blend (Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon), but the result is very unique: extremely fragrant and round, with a lot of exotic fruits flavors and a great freshness.
