Le Blanc d’Eulalie 2007

Chateau Sainte Eulalie, Vin de Pays d’Oc, Le Blanc d ‘Eulalie, Sauvignon 2007 Unfortunately this wine has developed too much volatility. It was stoppered with a very hard synthetic cork, so perhaps that allowed the ingress of too much oxygen.  Perhaps the wine was stunning when first released but that we cannot tell and I would be hesitant to purchase a future vintage.

It should also be noted that the label for the 2007 tasted in the United States is quite different from that posted online by the winery for the 2006 vintage. This is a long way of saying that we may be tasting a bottling commissioned by the US importer that is not reflective of the 2007 vintage bottling available in France.

Mis en bouteille in La Liviniere 12.5% $9.99 purchased at Bottle Barn
