An expert's opinion

A beautiful white wine! A ripe, dry and honeyed Sauvignon Blanc that manages to be both serious and fun at the same time; a winning combination! I'm delighted to present a wine from the Côtes de Duras, close to Bordeaux but with it's own style and unique identity. Domaine des Allégrets is the local star there, and this white wine offers a glimpse into the potential of the wines here.

Jean-Michel Deluc. Head Sommelier of Petit Ballon.
The estate

Domaine des Allégrets

Julien Blanchard is extremely proud of his heritage, with over five centuries of family involvement in the Côtes de Duras, and works hard to honour that history. A combined love of viticulture, wine-making and life in general is his secret, following in the footsteps of his beloved grandfather, Pierre Carrier. These are wines that combine style and tradition in perfect harmony!

  • Nose Fresh and zesty on the nose, with aromas of lemon, white mint, nettles and a touch of stone fruit after some time in the glass.

  • Mouth Despite its dry nature, there's an almost honeyed sensation on the palate, supported by lively acidity and bright, fruity flavours. Very refreshing!
