Château Goumin White

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Château Goumin Blanc

Located on a slope facing due south, Château Goumin has a splendid terroir. The vines grow on clay-limestone soil to produce very delicate dry white Entre-Deux-Mers that stand out thanks to their smoothness and finesse.


Chateau : Château Bonnet
Château Goumin white 2013 label
Appellation : Entre-deux-Mers

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

Grape blend

Sauvignon 50% / Sémillon 35% / Muscadelle 15%

Weather

There was record rainfall during the first half of 2013. Spring was very cool, even cold (May and June), and this caused a major delay in vine growth (flowering). Much more clement weather (warm and sunny) arrived in July and lasted until the harvest.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Château Goumin has a very brilliant colour.

Nose

Carefully controlled skin contact and post fermentation maceration account for this wine's perfect expression of Sauvignon Blanc. Château Goumin is elegant and ethereal, with hints of white fruit and acacia blossom on the nose, which reveals considerable subtlety when swirled in the glass.

Mouth

The wine starts out very smooth on the palate with citrus overtones and finishes with a beautiful long aftertaste. It is a treat with fish and seafood.

2014 - 2015
