Pale straw in colour with golden highlights. Very aromatic on the bouquet with distinct Sauvignon Blanc characteristics (ripe white fruit, apple, light tropical hints). The palate is fresh with vibrant acidity. Crisp clean flavours of ripe white peach, white flowers and some citrus notes on a lingering finish.

Chateau Jean Faux is an estate with a lot of history in the region, Located not far from Cotes de Castillon, the property dates back to the 18th century. The modern age for Chateau Jean Faux begins in 2002 when the vineyard was purchased by Pascal Collotte. One of the first decisions made by Pascal Collotte was to bring in the well-known team of consultants, Stephane Derenoncourt. The 12-hectare vineyard of Chateau Jean Faux is planted to both red and white wine grapes. Over the years, the vineyard has almost doubled in size. For the red wine grapes, the vineyard is planted to 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The vines are on average 30 years of age. The vines are planted to a density of 7,400 vines per hectare, which is quite dense for the Right Bank. 2 hectares of vines are reserved for white Bordeaux wine grapes, which are planted to 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Semillon. The terroir of Chateau Jean Faux is clay and limestone soils. The property now farms using only 100% biodynamic farming techniques in the vineyards.
