La Lionne Blanc 2016 IGP d'Oc - Château de l’Engarran


La Lionne is a white wine made of 100% Sauvignon Blanc, coming from strictly selected parcels within the vineyard of the Château - which can clearly been tasted in the glass. It has a nice golden robe with explosive aromas of citrus and white flowers, a buttery structure and a fresh peppery finish. A slightly complex bottle, ideal for amateurs looking for more than just a fruity aperitif white. It is wonderful when paired with a delicate white fish. Value for money is excellent!

What experts say  
Jancis-Robinson.jpg

16.5/20 "Hooray! A southern Sauvignon Blanc that doesn't reek! Sharp, snappy, hint of tangerine and begging for goats cheese salad. Absolutely delicious. GV (TC)" (previous vintage)

Wine-Spectator.jpg

87/100 "Presents an enticing aroma of sweet butter and flavors of ripe pear, baked apple and shortbread. Offers creamy notes midpalate, with a finish of lavender and allspice." (previous vintage)

Guide-Hachette.jpg

"This Lioness crunches a bunch of Sauvignon, and the tasters in a fleshy peach, both fresh and well-ripen. In the mouth, a cocktail of exotic fruits, a good balance between roundness and liveliness and a supple finish. Elegant."

Gilbert-Gaillard.jpg

87/100 "Light yellow glowing colour, green reflections. Promising nose, grapevine, citrus, flint. Suave attack, harmonious fleshy mouth that masks his manhood behind a great finesse, natural impression, chiselled aromas, well alert." (previous vintage)
