A Fusion of Wine and Art

The theme for this year’s edition, “Escapes to the Bassin,” invites you to explore the picturesque landscapes of the Bassin d’Arcachon, a region near Bordeaux known for its serene beauty and rich heritage. Jean-François Dareths, with his keen eye and masterful brushstrokes, captures the essence of these emblematic places in his watercolours. Each bottle of the 2023 N1 de Dourthe Sauvignon Blanc features Dareths’ evocative artwork, making this edition a collector’s item as much as a delight for the palate.

The 2023 N1 de Dourthe Sauvignon Blanc

“N°1 2023, fresh and aromatic on the nose, combines appealing citrus fruit aromas of lemon and grapefruit with an elegant mineral hint. Direct from the outset, the wine develops into a rich, fresh, and lively palate, culminating in a harmonious, fruity and persistent finish, characterised by the well-balanced liveliness and minerality of Sauvignon Blanc on limestone soil, the signature of N°1.” Frédéric Bonnaffous, Chief Winemaker.

Tasting Notes

  • Nose: Fresh and aromatic, with citrus fruit aromas of lemon and grapefruit.
  • Palate: Rich, fresh, and lively with a well-balanced minerality.
  • Finish: Harmonious, fruity, and persistent.

The distinctive style and character of N1 de Dourthe stem from a pioneering global approach. Since its creation in 1988, through the collaboration between Denis Dubordieu, Bordeaux’s godfather of white wines, and Dourthe’s dedicated partner growers, N°1 is the fruit of a dedicated team committed to revealing the most authentic expression of each appellation.

Embrace the Escape

As you enjoy the 2023 N1 de Dourthe Sauvignon Blanc, let Dareths’ watercolours transport you to the tranquil shores of the Bassin d’Arcachon. Each sip is an invitation to escape into the serene beauty of Bordeaux’s landscapes, captured with the same elegance and precision that Dareths brings to his art.
