Château Anniche Bordeaux Blanc
A delicate and aromatic dry white Bordeaux with 75% Sémillon and 25% Sauvignon. The latter brings freshness and a herbaceous character to the wine while the former adds weight and fullness along tropical hints. The irreplaceable know-how that stems from several generations of wine producers is today applied alongside the latest technological equipment and winemaking methods. A great example from the region.
A fresh and aromatic wine with subtle white flowers and honeysuckle on the nose along with lime and lemongrass. Souple on the palate, its citrusy and slightly grassy flavours are followed by developing tropical and ripe stone fruit highlights. A clean and persistent finish add to the complexity of this balanced Bordeaux.
About the Producer
Michel Pion’s family has been based in the village of Haux since Napoleonic times. 72ha of the 80ha estate is planted with vines which include nearly all the major varietals of Bordeaux.
The irreplaceable know-how that stems from several generations of wine producers is today applied alongside the latest technological equipment and wine-making methods. Marrying tradition with modernity, vinification is carried out in a new winery with temperature controlled stainless-steel vats and oak barrels for ageing. This modern and precise control during the fermentation process is carried out alongside a strictly traditional method of maceration. The “assemblage”, or mixing, of the different grape varieties focuses essentially on their blending, the objective being to ensure harmony and balance.
In keeping with their principles of sustainable viticulture to maintain biodiversity, and aware of the decimation of the bee population, Château Anniche have installed beehives, nestling between the vines and acacia trees.
