Château Barouillet "Bergecrac" Bergerac Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc/Sauvignon Gris/Sémillon/Chenin, Bergerac France
Organic, spontaneous fermentation, unfiltered, minimal SO2 at bottling
Château Barouillet has been family owned for 8 generations, with Vincent Alexis at the helm since 2010. In his tenure the domaine has returned to traditional organic practices- both in the vineyard and cellar. The vines are meticulously cared for and the winery is kept surgery-room clean in order to create precise, lively wines.
Grass and straw on the nose gives way to a zinging acidity, with peach, honeysuckle and a slightly creamy Nilla Wafer finish. A nice balance of citrus and stone, this wine is a perfect aperitif and a killer value.
