    With its perky freshness, delicious light fruit and citrus, chalkiness and pert acidity, the Chateau Toutigeac Bordeaux Blanc reels you in at the first sip. We like a glass as an aperitif so that we can savor the lovely mix of floral and fruit flavors, and the acidity that runs throughout. Homemade guacamole is a great option for an appetizer, as are steamed artichokes with lemony mayonnaise for dipping. A favorite summer meal of fried chicken and creamy potato, corn and chive salad will wow you, and go beautifully opposite the acidity of this Bordeaux Blanc. Pasta primavera with asparagus and fresh peas is a terrific meatless choice. A classic choice with this fantastic Frenchie is a buttery sole meuniere. We love it with garlicky jumbo shrimp done on the grill. Open another bottle and serve it with a French Selles-sur-Cher chevre, pear slices, white grapes, and toasted pecans. Bon apetit winelovers!!

    Wine Enthusiast:  Designated Best Buy. "The fifth generation of the family to make wine at the estate, Oriane Mazeau has created a delicately spicy wine that is lively and fruity. A floral character gives it a lift, as does crisp acidity. Bright, with plenty of flavorsome fruitiness, the wine is already a pleasure to drink." Aug 2017

    Winery:  "With its fine greenish yellow colour, this wine has a range of aromas which extends from exotic fruits (passion fruit, grapefruit) to flowery notes (boxwood, ivy) with hints of minerality as well. In the mouth, it develops all its balance between freshness and the roundness given by the Semillon variety when associated with Sauvignon. There is a fresh and lively character. Drink as an aperitif, or with shellfish, grilled fish, mixed salads and goat cheese."
