Chateau de Parenchere, is located at the easternmost edge of the Bordeaux region in France. The original foundations of the estate were laid in 1570 by Pierre de Parenchieres, Lord of Fourgoigniere, and was renovated in 1958 by Raphael Gazaniol. Of the 378 acres on the estate, 155 are under vine. The vineyards lie on the border between the Dordogne and the Lot et Garonne departments and are classified to produce Bordeaux Superieur, Bordeaux Clairet and Bordeaux Blanc Sec. 145 acres are planted to red varietals (50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec) and 10 acres are planted to white varietals (70% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Semillon, 10% Muscadelle). The average vine age is 25 years old, but certain parcels now exceed 40 years of age. Planting density is between 3,300 and 5,700 vines per hectare and the vineyard management is very much rooted in the principles of sustainable agriculture. In January 2005, Mr. Per Landin took over as majority shareholder. Together with Jean and Julia Gazaniol, they are dedicated to proving the potential of their terroir.

Tasting notes
A light pale yellow, the wine presents intense notes of white fruit and citrus. It offers a good balance between crisp, mouthwatering acidity and fruity, lemony, grassy flavors.

Technical notes
(70% Sauvignon/20% Semillon/10% Muscadelle). After harvesting, the fruit passes through an optical sorting machine. The Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle have 18 to 24 hours of skin contact before being pressed, while the Semillon is pressed after arriving in the cellar. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel at 60F in order to maintain freshness. After ageing on its fine lees for three months, the wines were blended and bottled.
