The small (9ha) Château Les Justices has just 2ha suited to a dry white, situated near the Ciron river on a little plateaux close to Preignac. This plot has part on deep gravel and part on gravel with silt, both soil types are planted with sémillon and a little muscadelle; and the sauvignon is just planted on the gravel. The wine is a blend of semillon 60% and sauvignon 40%; hand-picked with much work done to ensure perfect ripeness without any botrytis. The fermentations take place in vats and the wine is left on lees for a year resulting in a ripe rich wine with nice doughy / yeast lees character combined with a nuance of wild tropical fruit and a gossamer of fresh herbal complexity. This has nothing in common with Australian or NZ sauvignons! It will age for quite a few years and is remarkable value! When I taste this wine (which by the way is only cropped at just over 3 tonnes / acre) I am flabbergasted how good it is for this silly price!
