Chateau D'Haurets Bordeaux Blanc
This building, once a modest farm, was converted into a chartreuse in the 18th Century when it was acquired by a notable Swede. In 1983, this château is bought by our grandparents, Henri and Simone, and becomes their home. It’s the place where our family and friends gather together for all occasions. The château breathes joy and good living, just like the wines that are produced here.
Colour : Pale yellow with greenish tints Nose : A delicate balance of white flowers and fresh fruit Mouth : Very elegant, with length and a fine balance of softness and freshness Food pairings : Aperitif, fish, seafood
Chateau La Verriere Bordeaux Rose is an absolute cracker!. A delicious rose with ripe red summer fruit berry notes, lots of texture and priced a lot more favourably that Provence equivalents. It is a rose wine that is a joy to drink on its own but also works well with seafood and spicy food.
Chateau La Verriere is made by owner and winemaker Alain Bessette who is the fourth generation of his family to make wine at Chateau La Verriere. He is a talented man and his name is always on the short list for the ‘Talents de Bordeaux Superieur’ every year. The estate now convers 75 hectares and farms with a sustainable approach. It is located in Landerrouat in the far east of Entre-Deux-Mers, near the Dordogne region. Alain also keeps bees and makes a cracking honey!
