Château Tour de Mirambeau Cuvée Reserve Blanc 2019
This Reserve Cuvee wine forms from a blend of quality Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle and it brings a nice balance of floral and fruit elements. There is lively acidity, fruit and round palate weight on the palate and it is ripe with structure — a bright and vibrant white with sliced apple and lemon character. Medium-bodied, this wine gives fresh acidity and a clean and focused finish.
There is no oak-ageing for this Cuvee. Two years of bottle ageing, however, adds to texture and palate. All of these elements present a great counterbalance to spicy foods and can stand up to heartier dishes. Tour de Mirambeau is in the Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and is a long-established Château run by the Despagne family. " Tour" means tower on the estate, formerly a mill and the family's first home. Cuvee Passion is the top Cuvee. The name implies the estate's top wine and is composed of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Muscadelle, harvested from the best sites in the vineyards. Scores are good enough, such as 90 Decanter.
