Les Hauts de Terrasson

Bordeaux sweet white

Since 1997, the Vignobles Gonfrier have developed their “vinifying wine merchant” activity. This amounts to purchasing grapes from some forty partner winegrowers, in accordance with our production specifications and overseen by our technical staff.
The resulting wines are vinified and aged by our own oenologists at our Chais de Rions site.
“Les Hauts de Terrasson” is named after the hamlet of Terrasson, home to vineyard plots whose grapes we harvest.


A.O.C. : Bordeaux sweet white

Vineyard surface area : 30 hectares

Terroir : Clayey-limestone slopes and gravelly plateau of the Entre-deux-Mers region

Grape varieties : 85% Sémillon, 15% Sauvignon

Average vine age : 20 years

Viticulture : The grapes are grown on partner properties, where we participate in caring for the vines and overseeing the vineyards’ health all year long.

Vinification : The grapes are harvested when ripe with a high sugar potential. During vinification, a portion of the sugars is transformed into alcohol, while the rest – called “residual sugars” and generally amounting to 34 grammes – remain in the wine.

Ageing : In stainless-steel tanks.

Tasting notes :
A brilliant yellow in colour, with a light harmonious mouthfeel and aromas of white flowers, peach and apricot.
A pleasant wine that’s easy to drink. Ideal for aperitifs, spicy cuisine and desserts.
