Château Tanesse

Bordeaux dry white

Located on a high hillock among Langoiran’s sloping vineyards, this Bordeaux charterhouse was built during the second half of the 18th century by the Tanesse family. The property is surrounded by 30 hectares of vineyard atop very old foundations. Overlooking Langoiran’s medieval 13th-century castle, a magnificent panoramic view stretches from the edge of the Sauternais to the outskirts of Bordeaux while following the meanders of the Garonne River.


The Bordeaux dry white is made from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Muscadelle grapes grown on sloping vineyards. A mineral wine of great aromatic complexity.


A.O.C : Bordeaux dry white

District : Langoiran

Vineyard surface area : 5 hectares

Terroir : Silty-gravelly slopes

Grape varieties : 80% Sauvignon, 10% Muscadelle, 10% Sémillon

Average vine age : 20 years

Viticulture : Traditional Bordeaux-style vine training, with two canes and a flat arch. Controlled grassing-down of the vine rows or mechanical working of the soil, to improve the soils’ vitality and biodiversity. Manual “green pruning”, for a homogeneous distribution and proper aeration of the grape bunches. Mechanical grape harvesting.
Sustainable farming methods are applied to the entire vineyard, which
enjoys HVE3 (“High Environmental Value”) certification.

Vinification : The grapes are harvested upon reaching their maximum aromatic potential. Maceration under inert gas to capture the best of the grape skins, followed by delicate fragmented pressing. Clarification of the must, then alcoholic fermentation under controlled temperature (18° C). A third of the wine is fermented in French-oak barrels.

Ageing : On the lees for 6 to 8 months. In stainless-steel tanks and in barrels, then blending.

Tasting notes : 
Hues of light green. Powerful nose with notes of citrus fruits and white-fleshed fruits, and touches of smoke. Frank, mineral and dense in the mouth, with fruit and acidity. A lovely white full of character.
