Wine Wednesday: La Hargue 2019

Today’s Wine Wednesday is dedicated to this wine from Chateau La Hargue, a Bordeaux Moelleux 2019.

This winery has been in the same family since 1954 and has always been planted to white varieties. The soils are loam and favored by their proximity to water. Thanks to a sunny microclimate with good diurnal temperature changes, these white varieties develop beautiful floral and fruit aromas and reach their potential.

Tasting note: Lovely white wine with loads of texture thanks to skin contact maturation for several hours as well as lees stirring.

Pairing: This wine made me want to have Sushi and Sashimi or Indian food. I thought it would be perfect with these foods and offset the flavors while not overwhelming them. At $15, it was a perfect pour both for the price as well as the delicate and enticing aromas.
