The opinion of the sommelier

This wine was a very pleasant surprise ! The appellation Côtes de Duras is pretty well known for its red wines, but this one, Le Secret de Sainte Frivole, shows that it also produces excellent white wines. The nose is characterized by a feeling of a very fresh and delicate wine with citrus aromas. Take a sip and try to detect this little iodized taste that echoes the oceanic climate of Southwestern wines. To match obviously with seafood ! 

 

Terroir

The Côtes de Duras vineyard covers over 1500 hectares and produces 65% red and 35% white. Its subsoils, composed of molasses and heavy and sticky clays called Boulbènes, are very favorable to the blossoming of white grape varieties. Producing red wines is deeply embedded in the South-West’s culture and tradition, because their food pairs better with red and they want to compete with Bordeaux.

lecepage Grape variety

Contrary to what the name leads us to believe, the sauvignon gris (grey) is rather pale yellow. Characterized by clusters and berries of small size, it gives powerful and full-bodied wines with aromas slightly heavier than sauvignon blanc. The blend thus takes its full meaning. The sauvignon blanc brings a slight acidity and vivacity in the mouth, which balances the wine.

lemillesime Vintage

2015 is a year marked by precocity for the wines of the Southwest. The heat wave moved up the harvest by one week compared to previous years and stimulated photosynthesis, which resulted in a more pronounced aromatic intensity. Precocity usually results in high quality wines… Bingo ! 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Mauro-Guicheney’s family works with respect for traditions and the environment. Corinne and Didier cultivate with passion and knowhow the 30 hectares of vineyards of the family property, owned for half a century. Both passionate about vine-growing, they unite and take over the family farm in 1990 where they strive to keep the values of their ancestors. Since 2011, they also share this passion with their son who is now fully invested in this adventure. A promising wine story !
