Château Haut Terrasson

Bordeaux blanc moelleux

Château Haut Terrasson is named after Mr Terrasson, a famous Bordeaux lawyer of the 18th century. Most of the grapevines are planted on the steep slopes overlooking the Garonne River valley. These sunny hillsides produce powerful, hearty wines.


A.O.C.: Bordeaux blanc moelleux

Vineyard surface area: 30 hectares

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

Grape varieties: 85% Sémillon and 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.
