CHATEAU LE RONDAILH 2011 - Bordeaux Moelleux

£8.99

Bordeaux Moelleux.  Truly gorgeous off dry / semi-sweet wine with superb balance.  Characterised by its expressiveness in the mouth which is vibrant, fresh and lively.  Flavours of pear, peach, melon and lemon with delicate notes of hazelnut and crystallized pineapple. Very well crafted; the sensation of sweetness being ethereal and light. 

80% Semillon, 20% Sauvignon Blanc.  11.5% abv.  75cl

We are really pleased you have tracked this wine down having sampled some on holiday in Bordeaux last year. My wife thinks its fabulous and now we know where to get it at home we shall be visiting your wineshop on a regular basis Nick. Cheers!

Description & Press Reviews:
Wine Style: Semi Sweet White


Chateau Le Rondailh, owned by the Pallaruelo family for several generations in Sainte Foy La Longue, makes a classic and increasingly rare Bordeaux wine.  Their semi-sweet white wine is a Bordeaux Moelleux which we don't often see feted outside France. 

The AOC Bordeaux Moelleux is difficult to pin down; its meaning has become somewhat lost in translation.  When used in reference to wine the French term Moelleux describes the sensation of the wine as well as its taste:  'soft, smooth, velvety, lush, mellow'.   These types of wines are quite exceptional – slightly sweet, rounded and supple with mouth quenching acidity and superb balance.  It's a crime that we miss out on them here in the UK so we are absolutely delighted to be able to offer Le Rondailh at Bordeaux-Undiscovered.


Le Rondailh sits on the hills in Saint Macaire which lies on the right bank of the River Garonne between Sauternes and Saint Emilion.   The vineyard stretches out over three communes:  Sainte Foy La Longue, Saint Laurent du Bois and Saint Martial and covers 98 acres – 24 of which are dedicated to Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown especially for their white wines.

Chateau Le Rondailh is a wine that would be a fantastic aperitif but it's also a brilliant food wine that will accompany hot and spicy Asian dishes, curry, African-Caribbean cuisine, desserts, chocolate, cheeses (try it with Roquefort or Goats Cheese), pâtés, poultry, rabbit and seafood.
