The flagship of the Despagne family, this vineyard has always produced excellent white wines. A blend of Sauvignon, Sémillon and Muscadelle, it’s a fresh and pleasant wine, with very strong citrus aromas and delicious notes of passion fruit. The attack is lively and straightforward, smooth yet crispy at the same time, with very lightly nuanced undertones of pepper.
The red wines are generous, with ripe fruit flavors and supple tannins propped up by notes of cedar and wild forest.
The white loves a plate of seafood, and fresh pasta al dente with a homemade meat sauce goes down very well with the red.
For 25 years British Airways chose Château Tour de Mirambeau to keep its passengers company, helping our wines become internationally renowned.
Riding the wave of its success, Château Tour de Mirambeau has been able to offer another line called “Cuvée Passion”, produced in particular with grapes from specially selected parcels.
The white wine has a luminous pale yellow robe. The nose is a combination of citrus aromas, especially grapefruit, with a mix of flowers and white fruit. Full-bodied, rich and smooth, the palate is firm, with a tart freshness that gives it a beautifully zesty length. It’s a remarkably well-balanced wine, which only gets better after a few years in the cellar.
The red wine, matured with the greatest of care, is the typical right bank bordeaux blend combining Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
It is the perfect accompaniment for a beautiful rib steak, while the white will brighten up a nicely grilled bream sprinkled with rosemary.
