AOC Bordeaux White

After stringent selection, the grapes are vinified by our team of winemakers in Cave Sichel with the same painstaking care as for the Graves and Pessac-Léognan Grands Crus Classés. 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

    A brilliant, limpid pale yellow hue clothes this rich and complex wine with its notes of citrus fruit, white blossom and tropical fruits, such as mango and passion fruit. The front-of-palate is beautifully fresh, evolving to reveal generous extract and great freshness. Slightly toasty notes on the finish, which seems to go on and on. Definitely a great white wine, crafted for freshness, with the taste of Sauvignon Blanc dominating. Served chilled, it will make a marvellous aperitif drink to enjoy with friends, or a summer meal.

    AGEING

    Enjoy it young fruity and lively. After 3 to 4 years of bottle, the wine becomes more complex, more mineral.

    TASTING NOTES

    A beautiful pale yellow with greenish tints, a generous nose of tropical fruits, floral and citrus fragrances ending with marked mineral notes. On the palate, the volume and freshness are further indications of the richness of the Sauvignon, which forms a perfect alliance with the old Sémillon vines to deliver a wonderfully fresh, harmonious balance. A lingering, mineral finish rounds out this fine white Bordeaux.

    TASTING NOTES

    A pleasingly delicate pale yellow in colour with green highlights. Sauvignon accounts for a large proportion of this blend and this is reflected in the bouquet of this superb 2020. Underlying the predominating broom and box aromas, the bouquet exudes subtle fragrances of citrus fruit, tropical fruit (litchi) and white blossom Equally beguiling is the palate, beautifully balanced between freshness and aromatic length and displaying just a touch of toastiness It has all the class and personality of a great Bordeaux.
