Winemaker Jean-Marc Sauboua has won Trophies and Golds galore for his Bordeaux whites and this 2020 shows him on top form. The first sip reveals hallmark verve and zest with added sophistication, body and a lingering toastiness from the Sémillon and the oak. He likes to 'keep it in the family' at Le Chai, and sources some of his grapes from Château de Thieuley, firstly because the fruit quality is so good, and, just by the way, it's owned by his two nieces, great winemakers in their own right. Using the pick of the crop in this lovely ripe vintage, he has oak aged the wine for four months to lend subtle toasty spice to the broad peach and grassy edged fruit. A real modern classic – serve lightly chilled with asparagus or with fine seafood.
