Intriguing – a mix of grapes from Bordeaux and Jurançon, all in one stylishly packaged bottle. Details reveal that the Sauvignon Blanc (that’s the Bordeaux bit) which hails from the Plain Point estate in Fronsac and the Gros Manseng (yep, the Jurançon portion) were vinified separately before blending. There is no oak aging. A wine I selected to accompany a goat’s cheese salad and a selection of bruschetta.

Wine Tasting Note: Château Plain-Point Blanc, 2004, South West France.
Snapped up at Oddbins for £8.99.
It’s seems the perfect summer wine – crisp acidity with appley, wet stone flavours and an intriguing unripened-strawberry finish… an edge of citrus… a splash of herbs combining into a medium bodied whole. The deep colour of Gros Manseng and a complex aroma. Alcohol 12%. With the goat’s cheese it was a fine match; although it classed slightly with the sweetness from the quince jelly. I imagine a slightly sweeter Chenin Blanc from the Loire might have worked just a little better. Worked rather nicely with a selection of bruschetta too.
Scribblings Rating – 88/100

  1. I stumbled across your blog while I was doing some online research. This is the kind of site that we who are novices in this field really appreciate. I love it when I’m told, not only about the wine, but about suggested food pairings that work with the wine!
