The Bessette family has been making wine for four generations. The talented owner-winemaker Alain Bessette is named among the 'Talents de Bordeaux Supérieur' every year, a shortlist of top winemakers in the AOP, and his wines consistenly win prizes and accolades.The key to Alain Bessette's white grapes is keeping them healthy. He harvests them later than most other winemakers, and this in turn gives a different expression to the Sauvignon Blanc. Grapes are sorted by hand and vinification is carried out in stainless steel.
The nose shows exotic fruit and white peaches. The palate is quite full bodied for a white and has a gentle acidity. The aromatic aromas on the finish linger beautifully. This wine makes an excellent accompaniment to Scottish seafood.
