- TASTING NOTES
- Jean-Louis Despagne's white wines are considered among the finest of the appellation. Not only do they have the fresh, crisp, fruity style of a good Entre Deux Mers, they are also fat and rich with some depth and complexity. The rather special soil and the blend of grapes contribute to this, not to mention the meticulous wine making and well equipped cellar. The Cuvée Passion white is fermented in new oak and has wonderful exotic oaky flavours and sufficient depth and structure for the oak not to dominate. The Clairet is a delight. Beautifully made, it has wonderful fruit and a fat rich style that makes this the perfect picnic wine. The red wines are extremely well balanced, with interesting spicy bouquets and a vibrant fruity style. The Cuvée Passion is aged in oak and has the complexity and structure of a lesser St Emilion. Truly an exceptional wine from the Entre Deux Mers.
