Grape Varietals: 90% Semillon, 10% Sauvingon Blanc
Chateau Allégret’s Semillon-Sauvignon Blanc blend is located in the heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers region in Bordeaux, with these particular vines situated on an argilo-calcareous ground with a limestone foundation.
The well known world class wine region of Bordeaux sits in southwest France housing the Gironde Estuary and its two major rivers, the Dordogne and the Garonne, with a maritime climate of damp springs, rather hot, fairly dry summers, mild winters, with quite a bit of rain during autumn and winter.
Entre-Deux-Mers is a large sub-region of Bordeaux, which occupies a substantial area stretching from the city of Bordeaux in the west almost all the way to the farmland outside Bergerac in the east. Mostly fertile and green, rolling gently between 33 and 330 feet above sea level, the soils here are predominantly alluvial – sand and clay in varying proportions – which is to be expected given its name and location.
Spring vegetables, such as asparagus and peas are also great complements to Chateau Allégret.
