About the Winery
Château Haut Grelot is located in Saint Ciers Sur Gironde, approximately 50 kms north of Bordeaux, on the right bank of the Gironde Estuary. It was established by the Bonneau family in 1922 and now run but the 4th Generation. Today Château Haut-Grelot comprises 58 hectares of vineyards and is run by Céline and Julien, who was recently awarded the title 'Best Young Talent' in Bordeaux.
The vineyards are made up of sandy-gravel on the hillsides bordering the Gironde Estuary and sand-clay-silt on the hillsides further inland. Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux benefits from an ideal microclimate where there is a high level of sunshine and enough rain to guarantee the perfect environment for grape production. As a result the reds are fruity and concentrated and the whites are fresh, vibrant and delicate.

Very pretty nose here, and very ripe wine underneath, with excellent depth and concentration in the price category. This is considerably richer and more flavourful than one might expect from the appellation; wood is not a flavour factor but there's a creaminess and generosity that would suggest some barrel ageing. Grapefruit meets tangerines and pears, peaches and apricots in syrup. Very good length. Tasted August 2020.

A lovely, tender white Bordeaux blend - very sauvignon blanc dominant with 10% semillon. Juicy, limey, a little tropical and lovely florality. Geat value.
