Description
This delicate and suave wine offers a sustained ruby color with pretty purple reflections. Aromas of ripe black fruits (blackcurrant and blackberry). On the palate, the supple and silky tannins offer finesse and complexity to this wine. The finish is balanced, with an interesting aromatic persistence.

Winemaker Notes
The 2020 vintage enjoyed excellent conditions for making exceptional wines of very high quality. The Bordeaux Red appellation covers the whole of the Bordeaux vineyard, a very large geographical area with a great diversity of soils and terroirs, where the following varieties are found: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Carmenere, Merlot, and Petite Verdot. An oceanic climate preserves the vines in winter, with mild temperatures, temperate summers, and average rainfall, spread throughout the year.

The harvests are conducted mechanically, with hand- sorting and destemming. After crushing, the juice is poured into stainless steel vats and Malolactic fermentation begins (either spontaneously, or by introduction of yeast from another vat that has already completed it). Ageing also takes place in these vats, followed by a few months bottle-aging.

Interesting Fact
Carefully selected by Patrick Bouey, owner of Chateau Maison Blanche, with Pierre-Oliver Larrieu, Estate Manager. This wine is certified HVE level 3, in an approach that favors the resources and mechanisms of nature, reducing the pressure on soil, water, land and biodiversity
About Chateau Maison Blanche
CHÂTEAU MAISON BLANCHE
Love of Bouey Family for the land and his passion for the wine are expressed by the acquisition of vineyards, châteaux and estates renowned for their excellence, such as the Château Maison Blanche.
Built in 1832, Château Maison Blanche received the first official distinction of "Cru Bourgeois" in 1932. Handed down from generation to generation via the female line before Patrick Bouey acquired it in 1998, this wine mixes power of Médoc, nobility and elegance.
"Could it be because the Château was previously handed down from generation to generation via the female line that Maison Blanche is synonymous to me with class and elegance?
The wine is also powerful and relatively traditional, with a solid structure – the sort of style that would have pleased my grandfather!"
Patrick Bouey, Owner
Every vineyard plot is maintained individually and the wines from each one are fermented separately in order to fine tune the final blend. Green harvesting is practised, and the grapes are picked late in the season and carefully sorted. Fermentation is slow and gentle, and oak ageing is understated to complement the wines' intrinsic fruitiness rather than overpowering it. In conjunction with Stéphane Derenoncourt, the Bouey family can now avail themselves of expertise similar to that of the great growths.
