A blend of sauvignon (60%) and sémillon (40%) this Côtes de Bordeaux Saint-Macaire is distinguished by its notes of citrus, white fruits (peach, pear) and mint. It is ample on the palate with a lovely long lasting aroma and a fine vivacity. This dry white goes well with seafood and fish and should preferably be drunk soon in order to appreciate its crispness and delicacy. It may also be enjoyed as an aperitif, on its own or mixed with a hint of blackcurrant or blackberry liqueur.
The "last shorting¨ of the sémillon grapes is used to make this white Côtes de Bordeaux Saint-Macaire. Matured in oak barrels for 12 months, its golden colour is enhanced with silver highlights. It boasts a complex bouquet with intense notes of honey, candied and exotic fruit which can also be found on the palate. Ideal with foie gras and white meats. To be drunk now or aged for 5 years.
The Cuvée Mordorée is the fruit of two passions shared by four generations of Château de Cappes : the woodcock and quality sweet white wine. They share similar hues, the feathers of the bird are of a warm brown, identical to that of a grape with noble rot, and its golden glints echo the colour of the wine. This exceptional cuvée comes from the oldest vines on our estate. Only the first choice sémillon grapes with botrytis are selected. With a pronounced floral bouquet over notes of honey, acacia and apricot, this sumptuous delicacy is a noble and silky nectar on the palate. The Mordorée is matured in new oak barrels. This sweet wine is an ideal accompaniment to foie gras, white meats and blue cheese and goes perfectly with a local traditional dish : woodcock cooked ¨à la ficelle¨. It will keep for 10 years.
With its aromas of elderflower and acacia our Côtes de Bordeaux Saint-Macaire has a pleasant bouquet. Presented in a practical Bag in Box of 5 or 10 litres, this dry white can be served in a decanter or by the glass whenever you wish as it will keep for three months after opening.
