From the very outset, Delor has chosen 100% Sauvignon blanc for its Bordeaux white, to create wines of great elegance, where the aromatic intensity combines with verve and freshness:
A selection of the finest Sauvignon blanc terroirs: essentially from the «cold» clay-limestone terroirs to the north of the appellation, which are particularly well-suited to Sauvignon blanc.
A selection of partners who excel in white Bordeaux wines: growers who over the years have honed their expertise and specific innovative winemaking techniques.
Aged on the fine lees like the greatest white Bordeaux wines: 5-6 months, to optimise the aromatic intensity of the grapes and give the wines a remarkable bouquet.
A brand inspiring loyalty and delivering consistent quality, vintage after vintage.
Grape varieties : 100% Sauvignon blanc.
2018 Vintage: One Star (denotes a great wine) – Guide Hachette des Vins 2020 “This pure Sauvignon opens with scents of white flowers, resin and a pleasant hint of muscat. On the palate, our jury was impressed with its harmony, silkiness and the beautiful long finish with just the right amount of acidity. A subtle wine.”

2013 Sélection White Bordeaux – Gault & Millau July/ August 2014 “Such an appealing, springtime, elegant bouquet, revealing pronounced varietal character, but not overly so. Wonderful aromas of fragrant orchards, aniseed and also limeblossom. Simply divine on the palate, showing extremely rare balance.”

Delor Réserve Blanc is irresistible with its pale yellow, green-tinged appearance and bouquet exuding aromas of tropical fruits and lemon. On the palate, verve and elegance combine to make this a well-structured wine with a fresh and flavoursome finish.
