Château Tertre De Launay Bordeaux Blanc Entre-Deux-Mers 2020
Soussac is considered one of the best villages for white wines in the Entre-Deux-Mers. Many of the best known Châteaux are located there. The Greffier family has been making wine in Soussac for well over 100 years. Only since 1976 has Château Tertre de Launay been bottled at the estate.
Europvin has been associated with the property since then. In fact, after tasting a very acidic 1976 vintage, Christopher Cannan remembers taking samples of a number of other white wines to the château in order to help the Greffiers appreciate the style of wine required for the international market. Since then, the wine making has been going from strength to strength.
For some time Château Tertre de Launay was available at Taillevent, the three star restaurant in Paris. It headed the wine list and was the only wine available at under 100 francs per bottle ! The estate has now passed into the hands of young Ludovic Greffier, representing the 5th generation of his family to make wine here.
