Overview

While it might seem tempting to think of this as covering all your bases, Les Vignes Blanches is far from a muddle. Each variety contributes something to the final blend that somehow becomes greater than the parts. All come from the granitic soils of Château Thébaud, are fermented separately and blended after a few months of aging on the lees. The final blend combines the richness and slight nuttiness of the Chardonnay, the zesty aromatics of the Sauvignon, and the mineral depth of the Melon.
