Château Martinon Blanc

Although most white Bordeaux is dominated by the assertive Sauvignon Blanc grape variety, Château Martinon owner Jerome Trolliet favors Sémillon, using it for more than 60% of the blend, with Sauvignon Blanc (30%) and Muscadelle (10%) making up the rest. The emphasis on Sémillon yields a wine that is considerably richer and juicier than typical Bordeaux Blanc, while at the same time offering plenty of zingy lemon-lime freshness.  It is produced in the Bordeaux region of Entre-Deux-Mers (“between two seas”); the locals lightheartedly refer to their wine as  “between two oysters,” due to its traditional match with the region’s fresh-shucked oysters. The fresh, floral, and mineral scented 2012 Château Martinon offers up bouncy flavors of citrus/lime supported by juicy notes of marmalade and cut peaches.
