Bordeaux’s gorgeous red wines may have stolen the international spotlight, but the region’s stunning whites are well worth seeking out too. Case in point: this award-winning, oak-aged white Bordeaux from a historic, 150-year old estate.
Cuvée Eva hails from Château Gromel Bel Air. Founded in 1855, the estate lies in Fronsac, near the famous communes of Pomerol and Saint-Emilion. With just 27 acres of prime-sited, high-altitude vineyards to tend, the team can pay very close attention to quality. And in fantastic 2016 – “an outstanding vintage for Bordeaux for both whites and reds,” writes expert James Suckling – Mother Nature gave them a serious advantage.
A classic blend of Sauvignon Blanc and a dash of Sémillon, Cuvée Eva boasts two gold medals from the tough Concours des Vins Lyon and France’s prestigious Gilbert & Gaillard wine guide. Showing a lovely pale yellow color, this brims with intense aromas of ripe grapefruit, fresh citrus, and delicate flinty notes. The vibrant, well-structured palate offers more citrus flavors, plus toasty characters from light oak aging.
Enjoy Cuvée Eva as a refreshing aperitif or alongside grilled chicken, simple seafood, and more. Whatever you choose, this double-gold white Bordeaux is sure to be a winner with guests – order your share today.
