Château de la Vieille Tour makes wines for the frugal hedonist.

With sandy-gravelly soils bordering the Gironde, and sand-clay-silt further inland, Château de la Vieille Tour benefits from an ideal microclimate—And they’ve been at it for over 180 years! Farmed biodynamically, this is “alternative Bordeaux” and it’s an absolutely beautiful with more soul and story than most.

Bordeaux Blanc by Château de la Vielle Tour 2019 – Characteristics:

Exceptionally easy-drinking, this style of wine is a delightful complement to light meals of chicken and fish – such as raw and lightly cooked shellfish like oysters and shell-on prawns, fresh crab and simply grilled fish such as sea bass. It also adds a sweet and buttery freshness to salads and appetizers. 

This wine weighs in at under $23 and in its perfect drinking wheelhouse.

What the Critics Say:

“Rich, fruity and softly textured, this wine brings out tropical fruits as well as crisper herbal acidity. It is ripe, with density from the lees aging. Still young the wine will be at its best from late 2020.”
90 Points / Best Buy – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, October 2020
