L'Exuberance Blanc du Clos Cantenac AOC Bordeaux Blanc, 2020

Bordeaux

Grape Variety

Semillon

This is a new wine for Clos Cantenac, which has been on the minds of Martin and Charlotte for some time. The wine is pale in colour with extremely subtle, white blossom and hoppy aromas. The palate
is light with an extremely crisp acidity. Charlotte and Martin had originally planned to use Sémillon grapes from a small plot next to their old property at Saint-Quentin-de-Baron. For Members who in the past purchased the white La Source de Sours, this was an integral part of the blend. However, when the deal for those grapes was pulled from under their feet, they were obliged to search for an alternative spot. This took some time, but eventually they came across a small block in the Entre-Deux-Mers just outside Targon, on a gentle slope of clay over the all-important limestone. Why Sémillon you might ask? Perhaps a desire to do something different: 100% Sémillon dry white is a rarity in Bordeaux. The 2020 is currently tight and linear with a sour finish. Given that it’s the first vintage of this wine ever to be produced, it is difficult to predict how it will mature. Only time will tell.
