2020 Chateau Darzac, Entre-deux-Mers
2020 Chateau Darzac, Entre-deux-Mers
Sauvignon blanc isn't always my first choice for everyday drinking at home, but this is a wine which seriously changed my mind. We found this delicious white through a good contact in Bordeaux at the end of last year, and it came out on top in our blind tasting, so we shipped our first order straight away.
Hailing from the Entre-Deux-Mers, where many of Bordeauxs best drinking whites are made, its predominantly sauvignon, with a decent proportion of semillon, and a dash of muscadelle adding richness, weight and texture. Has the zippy citrus freshness we look for in a good sauvignon, but so much more character than most.
Château Darzac has been a wine estate for around 200 years the story goes that the first vines were paid for with a dowry the Barthe family received from Napoloeon Bonaparte one of their ancestors having got married on the same day as him. History aside, this is a smart, flavourful wine so moreish, and very food-friendly.
One of the best whites we've tasted recently - sauvignon blanc here, but also semillon and muscadelle, which add richness, depth and texture to the verdant freshness. Crisp and fragrant, with ripe pear and green apple as well as notes of anise and fresh-cut grass.
