M DE MALLE 2012

22.99

Beautiful Bordeaux Blanc with excellent balance.  Vibrant, fresh flavours of passion fruit, quince and melon with notes of spice, sweet scented acacia blossoms and a good burst of lemon acidity.  Stunning wine.

70% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Semillon.  13% abv.  75cl


Plenty going on in this wine, not what you would expect. A real eye opener. Do you think you'll be able to get more stocks in?

Gorgeous wine.
Review by: Colin Pitt, 25/03/2009

This may sound crazy but this Graves reminds me of a Meursault with opulence, fatness and a buttery fruitiness to it which hits you from the glass. A Bordeaux tasting like a Burgundy . . . wonderful!

Description and Press Reviews:
WIne Style:  Medium White

Some of the great Sauternes chateaux produce dazzling dry whites as well as their famous sweet wines and M de Malle is one of these rare white wines.  It is made by the Sauternes Second Growth Chateau de Malle, which is owned by the Comtes de Bournazel who have 400 years of wine making experience.  M de Malle is difficult to acquire because only 7,000 bottles are produced from the 7 acres of Graves vineyard so we are delighted we have tracked it down.

The vineyard
lies to the east of Preignac, in the small commune of  Toulenne, and the sandy and gravelly clay soil is perfectly suited to the making of great dry white wine.  Chateau de Malle is a magnificent building, constucted
at the beginning of the 17th century, and is a classified historic monument.  It's surrounded by classical Italian style gardens and has remained in the same family without ever changing hands.

M de Malle is ideal with chicken, duck, pork, feathered game such as guinea fowl and pheasant, salmon, seafood, creamy pasta dishes and soft cheeses.

Recommended food and wine pairing:
For the stronger flavoured pâtés and terrines such as Terrine de Canard a l’Armagnac (duck terrine reinforced with Armagnac liqueur), Terrine de Lievre au Pinot Noir, (a rich game pâté made with hare and pinot noir), Duck Terrine with Kirsch or Guinea Fowl Terrine (guinea fowl and raisin terrine).


Andrew Barrow - Spittoon:
A touch of class here - from the blossom and wax aroma through to the 'tinged with the exotic' palate. A combination of softness, a gentle rounded mouthfeel with a complex wax and citrus burst on the finish. Dry. That citric burst finality comes complete with a hint of herb and a gravelly texture.

The wax refe
rences are courtesy of the Semillon component in the wine, the addition of which also tempers the forcefulness of the majority Sauvignon adding a touch of richness along the way.

Is there also a hint of tarragon in the wine or is that just the mouth-watering aromas eminating from the kitchen? For Bordeaux Undiscovered recommend M de Malle Graves with chicken in a Tarragon Sauce to accompany. Rather than frying chicken breasts a hole poisson, stuffed with fresh tarragon was roasted and served with a sauce of chicken stock, roasting juices and Dijon mustard. A delicious match.

Hachette des Vins 2007: 
Coup de Coeur - the highest accolade achieveable!
