Chateau Lagupeau 2007

Chateau Lagupeau, Graves 2007 The nose is a mix of bay leaves, fruit and chemical notes. In the mouth the wine is hard and lean with lots of acid. There’s a sense that this wine is aging prematurely and I’d be hesitant to purchase another bottle. This is one of the second wines from Chateau Beauregard-Ducasse. The property is planted to red and white varieties. For the white wines, 9 hectares are planted to 50% Sauvignon Blanc and 50% Semillon. There is some skin contact before fermentation in stainless. After ferment, the wine is aged for a few months on the lees. Mis en bouteille au chateau par Vignobles Jacques Perromat, viticulteur-recoltant a Mazeres 12.5% $8.99 at Bottle Barn
