Jonathan Ducourt supervises the La Rose du Pin Chateau, which is part of a 13 chateaux portfolio created by his ancestors in 1850. He also owns the largest independent vineyard in the region covering a total of nearly 1,000 acres. They produce an astonishing 200,000 cases of wine yearly.

Many think Bordeaux has a vast array of chateaux lined up within its borders all making wine from the largest fine wine producing area in the world. The total number of producers is a staggering 12,000, more than the entire United States. But a full third of those producers are grape growers who sell their grapes and finished wine to chateaux and negotiants who want to produce a wine that says Bordeaux without the cost of growing the grapes.

Ducourt actually does both. He doesn't need all the grapes he produces so he sells a certain amount to eager negotiants waiting to get their hands on them. This allows him to pick and choose among his best lots for his own chateaux.

La Rose du Pin is located in the Entre-Deux-Mers appellation, which separates the Right Bank from the Left Bank of the Gironde River. It is primarily known for exceptional white wine featuring Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. In our case the Sauvignon leads the numbers with 80% of the blend. We love this grape in Bordeaux. It brings us the typical extraction we expect with bright white nectarine and touches of pineapple and lime. Imposing shellfish dishes like pasta with fresh sardines or bouillabaisse await.
