Biodynnamic, Low Sulfur, Vegan
Part of a new breed of Bordeaux producer that breaks the mould of the famous Bordeaux chateaux. Maison Blanche are located in Montagne-Saint-Emilion, one of the most picturesque bits of the Libournais on Bordeaux’s right bank, has been biodynamic since well before it became fashionable. Demeter-certified since 2013, Maison Blanche produces some of the most deliciously classical, low-intervention, low-sulphur Bordeaux wines on the market, wines of place that are quite atypical in a region widely regarded to have become a winemaking factory beholden to chemical fertilisers and pesticides without any justifiable claim to terroir identity.
