"Chateau Petit Freylon lies in the tiny village of Saint-Genis-du-Bois, and while it had been producing wine for generations, it wasn’t until 2011 when it found its place with a new family that reinvested in the vineyards, winery, and brought on a new winemaking team. Outside but near Pessac-Legonan / Graves, Chateau Petit Freylon set out to make outstanding wine of their terroir, bringing their wine to the forefront with an expression that, to this palate, competes with the top growths in those areas.
We usually associate Bordeaux with red wine – and for good reason, they make some of the world’s best reds. Yet they also make white wines. This tradition is as ancient as Chateau Y’quem being “above all others” in terms of Bordeaux’s ranking system. Relatively new to the scene is Bordeaux blanc sec, meaning dry white wine (usually a blend of Sauv Blanc and Semillon) from Bordeaux. “New” as in the last 50 or so years, and it’s taken off. Today we have an outstanding example:
The nose unfurls with aromas of orange blossoms, white peaches, kaffir lime leaf and hints of crushed oyster shell, ginger, Pomelos and kumquat. In a word, complexity. It lifts you up into its enticing aromas and draws you deeper into the glass, pursuing the luxuriously yummy taste. Next you find all the intense citrus and chalky layers on a full-bodied palate, one that’s lifted by the wine’s bold freshness and incredible length. "
