Ponty Blanc de Grand Renouil 750ml (Bordeaux, France)
Blanc de Grand Renouil is a rarity. In 1986, Michel Ponty found this perfect, tiny vineyard that was said to produce white wine centuries ago. That’s when he decided to produce the first white wine in Canon Fronsac, a place where only reds are traditionally allowed. With less than 3000 bottles produced annually, it can be difficult to get hold of Blanc de Grand Renouil before it is sold out, but it is worth it.
A traditional Bordeaux blend (Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon), it is extremely fragrant and round, with a great balance between the richness of exotic fruits flavors and a lot of freshness. This is the wine that you will drink all summer, never get tired of, and make you wonder why you never knew that Bordeaux could do such delicious white wines at such a good price.
