Tasting Note & Food Pairing Ideas

Château George 7 Blanc 2021 has an elegant nose bursting with aromas of fresh stone fruits & white flowers (orange blossom). On the palate, it is zesty for warm summer days while the oak and lees ageing give the body some ‘oomph’ and it bursts with flavours of white peaches and pears, citrus fruits (pink grapefruit & candied lemon). 

 

Enjoy as an apéritif and with several seasonal dishes such as a fresh prawn Thai salad, poached sea bass or grilled asparagus with parmesan. It pairs beautifully with creamy goats cheese too.

 

Committed to sustainability, the elements that make up the packaging of this wine reflect our approach - from the bottles to the boxes.

Expert View of 2021 Vintage

92 points, Jane Anson, April 2022

"The second vintage of this lovely white wine from within the Fronsac appellation on limestone-dominant soils, bottled as AOC Bordeaux Blanc. This has lilting acidities, great varietal character & high aromatics with a lemongrass and slate scrape on the finish. Great stuff. 6 months on the lees."
