A Bordeaux style wine in tribute to the winemaker’s French heritage.
Beaucanon Estate releases their 2007 Sauvignon Blanc–a mineral wine with blends of citrus, floral aromas and of tropical passion fruit, mango and kiwi flavors.
Produced at Beaucanon Estate in the heart of Napa Valley, the Sauvignon Blanc Bordeaux-inspired blend is sourced from premium grapes grown on the hillside vineyards of High Valley.
Beaucanon Estate wines are born of a family tradition spanning seven generations and are produced by Winemaker Louis de Coninck, who has cultivated a rich background in winemaking over the past 22 years. Following in his forefathers’ footsteps, de Coninck is known for working hard to make all his wines taste earthy, elegant and rich with quality.
This year’s Beaucanon Estate 2007 Sauvignon Blanc is an extremely versatile and drinkable wine and has the capacity to go with seafood and white meats such as chicken, veal, turkey and pork and will hold up nicely to herbal preparations (thyme, rosemary, basil, tarragon, and coriander). This wine has vibrant mineral and fruity flavors that compliment spicy and ethnic cuisines, as well as traditional French fare.
“Our family has always worked to make high quality wines, with the latest vineyard, and fermentation techniques. We knew the quality of this Sauvignon Blanc was impressive when tasting it during fermentation,” said Chantal de Coninck.
Beaucanon Estate is owned by the de Coninck family which has been in the wine business since 1740 in Bordeaux, St Emilion. Expanding by buying their first Napa Valley vineyard in 1987, Beaucanon Estate now has 203 acres spread throughout Napa and St. Helena. Currently the California winery is owned by the Jacque de Coninck family and managed by Chantal and Louis de Coninck.
The 2007 Sauvignon Blanc is one of ten wines Beaucanon Estate produces and will be available for shipment on November 15th 2007.
