Château Les Charmes Godard

Francs, Côtes de Bordeaux
0,75
White
This unusual white wine from the Côtes de Francs region is made by Nicolas Thienpont and could double for a Pessac Léognan. It has lovely complex flavours of wild hedgerows, orchard fruits and white pepper. Fermented and aged in 500 litre barrels and left on the lees for six months, this is a very pretty, rich wine with a predominance of Semillon (50%) well offset by Sauvignon Blanc (25%) and Sauvignon Gris (25%).
