L'Extravagance is an extra sweet white wine created in very small volumes when the grapes are high enough in quality and concentrated enough to make this wine. The blend used varies widely for each vintage and can be Semillon dominated, Sauvignon dominated, and in the case of the 2016 vintage, 100% Sauvignon Blanc.
Domaine Denis Dubourdieu represents five estates across the Bordeaux region. Their approach to viticulture is to treat the vineyards like a family garden; neat and orderly, but avoiding major interference in the growth of the vines and refusing artificial fertilisers and pesticides. To reduce the impact of their carbon footprint, the Dubourdieu family manages large forested areas!
The first of these are Chateau Doisy-Daene and Chateau Cantegril in the Sauternes AOC. The focus at these estates is naturally their botrytised sweet white wines, crafted primarily from Semillon, with a touch of Sauvignon Blanc to give lift and balancing acidity.
In the Graves AOC we fine Clos Floridene and Chateau Haura. These estates create classic left-bank Bordeaux reds, demonstrating a Cabernet Sauvignon dominance in their vineyards, but also some quite delicious Bordeaux Blanc!
Lastly, in the Cadillac AOC is Chateau Reynon. Almost two thirds of this estate is devoted to producing Merlot focused red wines and the remainder leans towards Sauvignon Blanc based white. Interestingly, on occasion, the white vines are affected by noble rot and in these years a small quantity of sweet white wine is created at this estate.
