Premier Bordeaux Wines
Pierre and Vincent Gauthier make Château Pertignas wines in Saint Vincent de Pertignas.
In this magnificent Entre-deux-Mers village, surrounded by rolling hillsides, forests, vineyards and historic buildings, Château Pertignas is an integral part of the landscape.
The personalities of these two winegrowers and their quality of life are characterised in their wines :
genuine, cheerful, sincere and straighforward !
The vines are made with great care and attention at every stage of production including working the soil and all manual work. In the winemaking process itself,
it is the local soil which helps determine the flavour of the wine more than technology.
The reds, (fruity and strong), mature, are aged either in tanks or in new french oak barrels.
The light fresh wines (rosé and dry white) are lively and rich.
Our wines can be found in well known top restaurants, specialist wine shops and at various competitions.

Typicity / tasting
Dry pale white with a golden hue. On opening, it is lively and mineral like with an almost smokey and iodized taste. It benefits from breathing a little, enhancing its fragrant white floral and ripe citrus fruit aromas. A remarkable Dry White !
Food and wine pairings
A new reserve arrived in 2012, this white wine is astonishing !
The Sauvignon vines are planted on cold soil in shaded areas which are the ideal growing conditions. This coolness and the mineral content of the soil, generates perfumes both fruity and complex
