Winemaker's Notes

93 Points

"This is a strong vintage for Bordeaux's dry white wines, probably as good or better than 2005. Crisp acidity combined with outstanding concentration and the fact that most of the white grapes were harvested before the rains began in mid-September resulted in an impressive group of wines." Robert Parker
Wine Advocate

Critical Acclaim

"Crisp honeyed grapefruit, white currant, and some smoked herbs are present in this classic, textbook dry white from Pessac-Leognan. The texture is gorgeous, and the wine aromatic and pure. Drink it over the next 15 years."

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
