  Château Nairac

Château Nairac, 2eme Cru Classé, Barsac

Contains Sulphites.

Appellation: Barsac

It is a region on the other side of the Ciron from the even bigger and more famous Sauternes district. Wines produced within Barsac are also entitled to use the appellation Sauternes.

The wines are considered more elegant than those of Sauternes. Climens and Doisy-Daëne are some of the leading producers

Grape Blend: Sauvignon Blanc | Semillon | Muscadelle

The traditional dry white Bordeaux blend is usually barrel-fermented to produce a richer, less assertive, food friendly style of Sauvignon with the Semillon adding weight and flesh to the blend, while the Muscadelle adds a delicate floral complexity. The greatest, most long-lived examples are to be found in the Pessac-Léognan and Graves.
