Château Bardins - Pessac Léognan - White
The white Pessac-Léognan from Château Bardins is made from 1/3rd of Sauvignon, 1/3rd of Sémillon and 1/3rd of Muscadelle. The grapes are grown in a typical Graves stony land with a clayey ground layer over only 35 ars of land. The grapes are harvested by hand and removed from their bunches. The grapes are then macerated with their skin to extract as much of aromas as possible, then pressed and fermented on oak barrels. The wine is stored for 7 months on its lees and regularly stirred (batonnage).

Presentation of the vineyard
Pessac-Léognan. The castle belongs to the Bernardy de Sigoyer family since 1903. Today it's Mrs. Stella Puel, who represents the 4th generation and who with great dedication is responsible for the wine growing as well as the wine production. Château Bardins is ISO 14001 certified as part of the 1st Association of SMEs (Système de Management Environementale) of Bordeaux wines. The intention is to minimize the impact on the ecosystem, ie on the air, the soil and the creatures, as well as being able to demonstrate the efficiency. The vineyard is run entirely without pesticides and only copper, sulfur and infusions are used to protect the plants. The wine fermentation is made with natural yeast from the grapes.
A beautiful straw-yellow color with silver brilliant hues. An intense nose of white fruit with a round, complex vanilla touch without exaggeration from oak. The palate is fresh with fine acidity, but balanced with a round fruity dominance and fat consistency. A complex and fine white wine to serve as aperitif, to pair with a fried sea bass with chanterelles or with chicken fillets.
