Château de Cruzeau White

Hand picking, whole grape pressing, and fermentation and ageing in oak barrels with bâtonnage (lees stirring) are but a few of the quality-oriented winemaking practices enabling us to make the most of superb grapes. Featuring fruity and floral overtones, this wine consistently leaves the impression of a vivacious, distinguished wine.

label of 2017 Château de Cruzeau white
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Tender and Aromatic

Grape blend

100% Sauvignon


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


A lovely pale yellow colour.


The nose reveals all the typical aromas of a beautiful Sauvignon Blanc, with hints of white flowers (acacia), flint, and white fruits (nectarine), accompanied by a slight smoky note.


Rich, complex and well-balanced on the palate. This white Château de Cruzeau is extremely elegant, with beautiful richness, going on to reveal soft notes of white fruit (nectarine), much to the delight of the taste buds. Goes wonderfully with sautéed rabbit in a tomato sauce, fish gratin or marinated prawns.

Ratings and reviews

James Suckling : 

Lemon-meringue and biscuit aromas lead to a very smooth and flavorful palate that has plenty of drinkable appeal. 100% sauvignon blanc. Drink now.

Le Guide Hachette - 2020 Edition : 
 - Note : 


This wine gets off to a promising start displaying a straw-yellow colour with green highlights. The bouquet is reminiscent of Sauvignon Blanc (the single grape variety), unveiling aromas of white fruit (peach) and ripe grapes underpinned by smoky aromas characteristic of the Graves terroir. The round and well-balanced palate paves the way for an incredibly soft finish. Best enjoyed between 2020 and 2024.
