A nose of muscat, which means of grapes
Fresh - Fruity
His distinctive sign is the hippo! A small, plump hippopotamus straight out of the fairy tale told to him by his grandmother and now stamped on all his labels. This type of joke is unusual in Bordeaux, but Renaud Limbosch remains a child at heart, whether the grumps like it or not. Located in Monbadon, 15 kilometres from Saint- Émilion, Château Tifayne comprises 13 hectares of vines on the Castillon and Francs appellations. Renaud and his wife Franziska, both of whom have diplomas in agricultural engineering from Gembloux, bought the vineyard in 1997.
For the only white wine in his range, Renaud Limbosch has chosen Muscadelle, contrary to local customs which tend more towards Sauvignon and/or Sémillon. The Muscadelle plots are more than 60 years old.
This wine has been aged for a short time, partly in 500-litre (used) Charentaise barrels and partly in cement vats.
Shimmering pale yellow robe.
Aromas of grape and exotic fruits, with notes of acacia and honeysuckle.
Dry and fruity, with fine acidity.
Aperitifs in the sun or a fish terrine.
