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
label of 2017 white Château Goumin
Appellation : Entre-deux-Mers

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

Grape blend

Sauvignon blanc 60% / Sémillon 20 % / Muscadelle 20%.

Weather

The 2017 vintage was one of the earliest on record. The growing season was marked by a dry winter and spring (46% less rainfall than usual), accompanied by temperatures 2°C above average (except for the frost in April). This dry summer weather was ideal for ripening the seeds until late August.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Lovely crystal-clear pale yellow colour, hinting at the wonderful freshness to come on the palate.

Nose

Intense bouquet featuring remarkably fruity aromas. Delicate nuances of white flowers and citrus fruit fill the glass.

Mouth

Well-balanced on the palate, with a beautifully long lemony aftertaste.The superior flavour profile makes this wine a perfect match for seafood dishes. This wine is also delicious on its own, its freshness making for an ideal aperitif.
