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

    Beautiful pale yellow with greenish tints. Pleasant front-of-palate marked by fresh, powerful citrus and mango aromas. OHints of vanilla and blackcurrant buds emerge on swirling, lending this wine remarkable intensity and complexity. The same aromatic array is found on the palate, enhanced by lingering balance and volume. A great Bordeaux white.

    TASTING NOTES

    A brilliant wine with slightly greenish tints, SIRIUS 2015 offers a superb nose of grapefruit, lychee and rose. Razor-sharp, powerful aromas – the sign of perfectly ripened Sauvignon. The volume and freshness on the palate are the hallmarks of rich Sémillon grapes and combine deliciously with the hints of citron, white blossom and vanilla. A powerful, lingering wine, creamy and fresh at the same time.

    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.
