A Jewel from Bordeaux’ Entre-Deux-Mers

Literally translating to “between two seas”,  Entre-Deux-Mers is the largest region within Bordeaux.  Located on the Right Bank, it is the area between the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers.

At the heart of the Entre Deux Mers appellation, Château Martinot benefits from an unmatched situation on clay-limestone hilltops dominating the Dordogne River, a few kilometers from Saint-Emilion. Since 1790, this family-owned estate has passed from mother to daughter for seven generations.  The current manager has collected part of her inspiration from trips to California vineyards, e.g. her cement vats for a thermo-regulated wine cellar.  Her wine shows off freshness and delicious fruit aromas: nose with pear and white flowers notes, a vivacious palate start with a supple evolution; fresh final with notes of lime, grapefruit and acacia flowers.

– mother to daughter tradition
– great location of the estate
– simplicity and elegance
– sustainable viticulture and minimal intervention

Cheers to an excellent, well-priced white blend from Bordeaux!
