Marjosse White 2018
For the first time in the château’s history, each grape variety was picked and vinified separately for a more precise final blend. The picking took place in the very early morning hours, sometimes even before sunrise, when temperatures are cooler. Pressing in pneumatic presses was swift and gentle. The wine is golden and bright and has its characteristic aromas of grapefruit, mango and pineaple. In the mouth, despite the rich nose, it is tense and very fresh with a nice bitter orange finish.
