Tasting Note & Food Pairing Ideas
Château George 7 Blanc has an elegant nose bursting with aromas of fresh stone fruits & white flowers (orange blossom). On the palate, the oak and lees ageing gives 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, salmon fillet 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.

“Gently lilting aromatics, this has a pulse of minerality, savoury lemongrass and gentle citrus notes, and a mouthwatering finish….. Recycled glass for the (1,500) bottles also. First year of a white wine produced by this relatively new chateau in Fronsac, ….. Aged for six months in Burgundy barrels (no new oak).”
