Château Laulerie ‘Juste Ciel’ Sémillon 2018

21.50

Description

Good heavens! Chateau Laulerie’s ‘Juste Ciel’, its moniker a nod to the ever changing theatre of the sky, is an elegant and minerally 100% Sémillon from wine family Dubard’s Bergerac stable.

Almond and flint overtones show on the nose and on the palate, a mixture of gingerbread, bergamot and bay leaf flavours intermingle with delicate lees-ageing nuances. The wine’s palate weight and fleshiness is counter-balanced with a refreshing acidity showing on the finish, a beautiful expression of this intriguing grape.

Producer: Vignobles Dubard

Vignobles Dubard is the second generation family operation of Gregory Dubard, located in Bergerac, just east of Bordeaux and the Durdogne river. The homestead, Château Laulerie, is a 19th century stone farm surrounded by the original livestock buildings. The estate comprises 85 hectares of vines with Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc and Malbec dominating plantings. Soil-type here is almost identical to that of neighbouring Saint-Émilion but land, and subsequently wine here, is much more favourably priced.
Gregory first gained experience in St Chinian and Chateauneuf-du-Pape, traveling further afield to gain experience in Italy and New Zealand, and finally closer to home in Pomerol. He arrived back at Château Laulerie in 2009 determined to tell a story about the Bergerac terroir through fabulous wines with contemporary branding.
