Bordeaux may be most famous for its great reds, but it also excels in making deliciously drinkable wines at a price that is extremely wallet-friendly.

The trick though is to find the best and with today's offer we've done all the hard work for you!

At an exceptional price of just £9.95, the lovely Château Valade Blanc 2016 is a great example of Bordeaux's Entre-Deux-Mers, long a source of excellent white wine.

The result of huge amounts of hard work by young winemakers Mylène and Guillaume Guennec, this vibrant, refreshing dry white, full of grapefruit and lime fruit, is absolutely perfect summer drinking!

Exclusive to Vivino in the UK, this is one to snap up by the case...

About the wine

A pretty pale yellow in the glass, this is classic Entre-Deux-Mers with mouth-watering aromas of grapefruit, yellow plums and citrus fruit. Pure, fresh and full of fruit on the palate, there’s a great breadth of flavour and a deeply refreshing, zesty acidity. The finish is surprisingly long with slight herbal notes and a definite minerality. Definitely punching above its weight, this is a wine that is great with food or without. Perfect for any occasion!

60% sauvignon blanc, 25% sémillon and 15% muscadelle, the grapes are harvested at night to retain maximum freshness. Vinified separately, the wines are all aged on their lees before being blended and then bottled.

About the winery

Both born and raised in Entre-deux-Mers, Mylène and Guillaume met at college, where they were studying viticulture and at which they point they decided they wanted to fulfil their dream and make wine in their home appellation.

After graduating, they spent eight years working on their families’ estates before buying Castenet in 2010. The property came with the opportunity to lease the Valade vines and ever since they have steadily invested in and increased the quality of the wines. A new winery has been built with the latest equipment and a barrel room.

About the vineyard

Mylène and Guillaume Guennec bought Castenet in 2010 which also gave them the opportunity to rent La Valade. Since taking the property on, the duo has increased planting density with the aim of improving the quality and concentration of the fruit.

Vines are, on average, 20 years old. The soils are clay and chalk.

"
The 2016 Château Valade Entre-Deux-Mers instantly delivers a burst of grapefruit and lime with hints of fresh herbs and stony minerality. On the palate this is fresh, pure and vibrant as it continues to deliver mineral and citrus tones through the bright finish."

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING OVERVIEW

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:


  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


SHIPPING SCHEDULES FOR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPMENTS

All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.


Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.


If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


TRACKING INFORMATION

Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.


You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.


Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


KEY ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING

  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
