Le Merle Blanc 2021
Origin: France | Bordeaux | A.C Bordeaux
Producer: Edmond de Rothschild Heritage | Château Clarke
Tasting Note: Le Merle Blanc kicks off with a touch of citrus peel and jasmine then leans towards lemongrass and slightly richer creamier notes from the judicious oak interaction.

This is very clever winemaking that brings together all the qualities you expect in a fine dry white wine.
BaronArques Chardonnay 2018
Origin: France | A.C. Limoux
Producer: Baron Phillipe de Rothschild | BaronArques

With airing, it expresses perfectly ripe fruit mingled with spicy and white pepper notes. The fresh and crisp attack leads into a full and succulent mid-palate. Lime flavours dominated by generous, tangy fruit give a certain tension to the wine, which ends on notes of patisserie and flaky pastry. The long and elegant finish lingers on a thoroughly mineral freshness.
