Château Les Pasquets
50% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Sémillon, 10% Muscadelle
Situated in Daubèze at 330 feet above sea level, the vineyards of Château Les Pasquets enjoy an ideal exposition and the soils are particularly fertile. The property is the result of successive associations between farming families. Historically they combined viticulture with crop and livestock farming. The grandchildren of the Sahunet and Delugin families opted to specialize in viticulture in the middle of the 1970s creating Château Les Pasquets.WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES
This estate owned by the family Sahunet for many generations is located on the hills overlooking the Dordogne River. The vines are covering 50 acres of hilly alluvium and clay land with ideal sun exposure.
On reciept, the harvest goes through a period of maceration that lasts between 9 and 18 hours, in stainless steel vats at a temperature of 59°F–65°C, to extract the maximum flavor. Then the alcoholic fermentation takes place on fine lees.
The wine is aged for three years.TASTING NOTES
