2019 Blanc 'Les Pierrières' Blaye
|Sub-district||Blaye & Bourg|
This is fast becoming one of the most popular white wines at L&S. As ever M. Filliatreau gives his white around six week in the barrels that will be used for the red once that is ready to come out of its fermentation vats. A canny use of resources that adds real class to this well-priced white Bordeaux. There is firm pineapple and some grapefruit notes on the nose along with a hint of vanilla. On the palate, the texture takes over. The juice is dense with good focus and energy. There is bags of flavour and character. A real charmer that continues to offer amazing value for money. L&S (Mar 2020)

Château Beaumont Les Pierrières
In 2006 M. Filliatreau, the owner of Château Beaumont Les Pierrières was desperate to get a slightly better price for this wine from the old vine Semillon-Sauvignon produced from a 2 ha plot attached to a property that mainly makes red. He hit on the idea of barrel-fermenting it in the new barrels destined for the red wine. Since it is picked early (in August) it completed its fermentation in wood and was back in tank by the time of the 'décuvage' of the red. Because the barrels were needed for the red, their cost has not been factored in to the price of this fantastic bright and surprisingly complex white, which is amazing value for a barrel-fermented wine.
