Sirius

AOC Bordeaux White

The grapes are carefully selected before being fermented and aged in oak in exactly the same way as the Grands Crus Classés of Graves and Pessac-Léognan. Sirius White is situated at the high end of the Bordeaux category; Sémillon is the principal grape variety, bringing the lushness of tropical fruit to the more tangy Sauvignon. A discreet, pared-down label for a modern chic, wine, equally ideal for trendy bistros or gourmet restaurants. Also exists in Red and Rosé.

    TASTING NOTES

    This Sirius Blanc 2016 displays tropical fruit (mango, pineapple) from the beautifully ripe Sauvignon on the front of palate, On swirling, more oaky and vanilla notes afford great charm and complexity. Equally beguiling is the palate, beautifully balanced between freshness and aromatic length and displaying just a touch of toastiness.

    AGEING

    Can be enjoyed young for all its freshness and zing! After 3 or 4 years in bottle, Sirius white gains in complexity, developing characteristic mineral flavours.

    This cuvee is as elegant as ever, with its brilliant pale yellow hue and generous bouquet expressive of mineral notes of Sauvignon and toasted bread, ending with tropical fruit. The palate is ample right from the attack, delicately textured with deliciously toasted flavours together with mango and pineapple notes, and evolving to an expressive, lingering finish.

    AGEING

    Enjoy it young, from 2018, over an informal meal.
