Champ des Treilles 2019 Sainte-Foy Bordeaux Vin Passion Blanc

This is a unique example of Bordeaux Blanc from one of the first organic and biodynamic properties in the region, located in the lesser-known Sainte-Foy. Corinne and Jean-Michel Comme started to replant these vineyards in 1998 using as little intervention as possible, avoiding pesticides, green harvesting, even tractor plowing, and using neutral oak for aging to allow each vintage to speak for itself. Grown on clay and limestone soils, the Vin de Passion displays a beautiful balance of texture, minerality, and ripe fruits. The blend is 1/3rd Sauvignon Blanc, 1/3rd Semillon, and 1/3rd Muscadelle, which gives the wine a richer mouthfeel and more floral aroma than a typical Bordeaux Blanc. The fruit is fermented in steel and cement, rests on the lees for one month, and continues to age for five months before being lightly filtered and bottled. Notes of fresh linen, wild flowers and lemon oil on the nose upon opening, but after some time in the glass a bit of nuttiness and marzipan is revealed. On the palate is juicy lemon,  green pear, fleur de sel, and smooth river rocks. For the price, this is an over-performing, beautiful wine that will pair with a wide variety of lighter fare.
