Château Sainte-Marie is located in the SW of France in the Bordeaux wine region, right in the middle of the prime wine-growing Entre-deux-Mers area between the Dordogne and Garonne rivers.

Tasting Notes – this wine has a lovely aromatics, which reveals pretty notes of white blossoms and tree fruits, namely pink grapefruit and citrus. Its fine and distinctive nose of green apples, peach and pear. It is very well balanced and nuanced. It reveals fine freshness, good acidity and complexity with its multiple layers on the palate making it suitable for summer salads, fish and poultry dishes. A fine value for a white Bordeaux!
