Since its inception in Bordeaux in 1840, Dourthe has remained true to the values underpinning its rich and unique history: its connection to the terroir, extremely high quality standards and an innovative approach. Grape growers at heart, Dourthe owns six chateaux within the Bordeaux region. Each estate is run by a young, dynamic team working under the overall control of Frédéric Bonnaffous, Director of Vignobles Dourthe. Their objective is to enhance the terroir and produce unique wines, the standard bearers of the appellation. The same quality standards apply to selecting the wines that make up our final blends. Thomas Drouineau, the Dourthe winemaker, works hand in hand with the growers to guarantee supplies of the finest wines, that through their care and attention, will mature gracefully in our cellars at Parempuyre.
Dourthe No 1 – Bordeaux Blanc – Dourthe N°1 2012 is a very enjoyable wine, with its impressive, full palette of aromas, which range from the freshness of tomato stalk to the intensity of passion fruits. The wine is rounded and bursting with fresh fruit character, with a delicious finish. http://shop.yorkshirevintners.co.uk/france/bordeaux?product_id=704
Dourthe No 1 – Bordeaux Rouge – Dourthe N°1 red is intense garnet red in appearance. Wonderfully seductive on the nose, it unleashes red and black berry fruit aromas, enhanced with a hint of delicately spicy oak. Initially supple on the attack, the wine is rounded and generous on the palate, and the aromas evolve harmoniously against the beautifully balanced tannic structure. The wine finishes on a long, flavoursome and slightly smoky note. http://shop.yorkshirevintners.co.uk/france/bordeaux?product_id=703
