Cap Royal Bordeaux Supérieur Blanc

Cap Royal takes its name from the royal Cordouan lighthouse, the oldest lighthouse of Europe, situated at the entrance of Gironde Estuary. This 14th century beacon once signalled safe passage to Bordeaux wine merchants, returning home after sharing the great wines of Bordeaux with the world. Cap Royal Bordeaux, it’s above all the purity and freshness of the Sauvignon Blanc aromas, a careful selection of the best cuvées by Jean-René Matignon (Technical Director at Château Pichon Baron, 2nd Growth)
