Wine Style: Rich White
Closure: Cork / Cork Type
Producer: Chateau Capion
In the 1880s, work began in earnest on restoring the château to its former glory; and, at the same time, Mr Keittinger added to the property by constructing large cellars and outbuildings.
It was fortunate that he had plenty of money to burn. When Phylloxera hit France in 1863, sending wine prices rocketing and later decimating the Capion vineyard like so many others, Mr Keittinger still had enough in the bank to buy and import American vine stocks. He grafted them onto the few remaining French ones that had survived the natural catastrophe, and was able to look to the future again.
Tasting notes: Pale yellow, the complex nose reveals lemony, tangy and mineral notes as well as strawberry leaf-tip. On the palate it is first fresh and delicate from citrus fruits; then, as it opens out, it hints at thyme, saltiness. This wine, balanced by faint woody notes, gives an initial insight into the character of our terroir. To pair with fish baked in fennel, grilled cuttlefish or to enjoy side by side with hard cheese.
