Chateau Puygueraud Blanc 2019

SKU: 3103002058254831Categories: ,


Lovely ripe and expressive nose, quite full and exotic – lemon, lime, mandarin, grapefruit and pineapple – such complexity on the nose. This is so alive, really high acidity balanced by lush juicy fruit. Round but light on the palate, such energy and verve with good background of salinity and touch of oak adding definition and structure. This is fun and fruit forward. A bright wine that wants to come out and play. But it’s the sweet, honeyed edge of the fruit that’s the best, it captures interest and holds it all the way. Almost a touch of lemon sherbert on the end. Drink now for high acid and upfront freshness or hold on to. A bright, vivid white with pineapple and sliced peaches. Medium-to full-bodied with lots of fruit and intensity. Barrel Sample: 92-93 A blend of 88% Sauvignon Blanc and 12% Sauvignon Gris, the 2019 Blanc was harvested from the 9th to 17th of September. The yields were 60 hectoliters per hectare this year with about 53% of production going into the grand vin. The nose sets off at a good gallop with expressive notes of allspice, ginger ale, lemon tart and baked pears with hints of pie crust and paraffin wax. Medium-bodied, the palate is crisp, clean and refreshing with plenty of spicy sparks and great length. Barrel Sample: 89-91
