Jean Faux Trois Maisons Bordeaux Blanc
Château Jean Faux was purchased by Pascal Callotte in 2002. Callotte had worked for Tonnellerie Saury, a producer of wine barrels and casks. His consultant winemaker is Stéphane Derenoncourt, who has worked for prestigious Bordeaux estates such as Domaine de Chevalier. After buying Château Jean Faux, they immediately set out to fully renovate the winery and its vineyards, which are now fully organic. The Trois Maisons label is part of Callotte’s négociant business. The grapes are purchased from a grower whose organically farmed vineyards are 7 kilometres from the estate.
This crisp and citrusy Bordeaux Blanc is made from a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Light in body with lean acidity, it has refreshing notes of grapefruit, lemons, and wet stone.
