This wine is delicious and ripe for the picking. The nose reveals fresh citrus peel and zest, crisp Bartlett pear, honeysuckle, apple, apricot and a chalky minerality found on the palate as well. The mouthfeel reveals a prominent acidity with soft edges, lemon chiffon, honeydew melon, and hints of passionfruit. Enjoy this wine with seafood dishes, oysters, poached chicken and steamed vegetables with a Dijon tarragon sauce, savory croissants, or Crottin de Chavignol (Mild goat) cheese.
Maison Raymond produces the highest quality AOC Bordeaux organic wines. Located in the Entre-Deux-Mers region, not far from the city of Bordeaux, their wines have grown in the villages of Saint-Laurent-du-Bois, Saint-Martial, and Saint-Felix de Conclude since medieval times. The Raymond family has a long history of growing wine, dating back to 1850.
The family property of the Domaine du Château de Lagarde has been built up over the years by successive generations. Today, the winery honors its heritage by using a special mixture of ancestral tradition and the most efficient modern technology.
The different properties of the Domaine benefit from specific conditions: special orientation of the vineyards, composition of the soil, humidity, age of the vines…These conditions are refined during the winemaking allowing them to offer a large range of products. Over 20 people work in the vineyard and the cellars, and consistently looking for innovative techniques in terms of production, vinification with respect for the vines, soil and environment.
What makes the main difference in the wine produced by organic agriculture, is the word “respect”: respect of the soil, on which the vine is planted, respect of the vine, respect of the organic methods, and all of this for the respect of the environment and the respect of the consumer. Vignoble Raymond’s wines reflect a certain “savoir-faire,” speaking deeply to their heritage with a distinct taste of place that only organic wines can impart.
