Chateau Tassin Bordeaux Blanc is a dry white wine of 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Semillon. Château Tassin was established in one of the oldest medieval cities of the Garonne Valley, Rions. Owned and operated by the Gonfrier family for several generations, their philosophy in wine making respects traditional methods of viniculture and viticulture, while constantly aiming to improve methods and practicing sustainable agriculture. The wines of Château Tassin exhibit a classic, fresh style of affordable, approachable Bordeaux.
What's especially interesting about this new wine gem is its innovative packaging. It comes in an adorable wooden Wineberry Box made of Bordelais oak and it holds 3 liters of wine-the equivalent of 4 standard 750ml bottles. Perfect for parties and summer picnics because it's so lightweight and durable-and amazingly compact! It's also a great everyday house wine, and you don't need to worry about 3 liters of wine going bad. Once the tap is opened the wine will last for six weeks in its airtight bag inside the box! What's not to like? Just remember that all boxed wines are meant to be consumed within 12 months, so drink up!
Chateau Tassin Bordeaux Blanc is a straw-colored wine with brilliant hues. It offers a very fruity nose with aromas of citrus and pear. Nicely balanced, it is smooth and pleasing on the finish.
Chateau Tassin Bordeaux Blanc pairs well with goat cheese, fish, shellfish, and sushi.
Note three 3L boxes constitute a "case" for case discount pricing.
Opening instructions: Place the Wineberry Box upside down and slide open the bottom wood panel. Remove tape covering hole in front panel and push spigot through the hole with tap facing toward bottom of box. Slide bottom panel closed and turn box upright. When ready to open, simply remove plastic seal from spigot. Place wine glass under spigot and lift up on two side buttons of tap to dispense wine. Swirl and enjoy!
Recycling suggestion: Wineberry boxes are a nearly perfect fireplace fire starter! Just stuff 2-3 pages of wadded newspaper into a box with the bottom panel removed, stack it on its side on the andirons and light through the hole with a match. It sustains a beautiful fire for 10 minutes or more as you add logs on top!
