Winemaker's Notes

The Réserve Bordeaux Blanc is made of Sauvignon and Sémillon grapes, which are combined in a well-balanced way. They mainly come from the Entre-Deux-Mers region and the Côtes de Bordeaux.

THE VINEYARD
The prestigious Barons de Rothschild family has owned vineyards in Bordeaux for generations. In addition to the wines issued from their world- renowned vineyards, Les Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) has been elaborating a range of wines which are easy and pleasant to drink called "Réserves".

HARVEST & AGEING
Inspired by a grand tradition of quality, the Domaines teams have one priority: selection. Their mastery and perfect knowledge of Bordelais cepages are responsible for the unparalleled quality of their wines. It was a rainy period during the flowering of the vines. As a consequence, the yield of the 2003 vintage was lower than previous years and brought about concentrated wines. During maturation and harvest the weather conditions were remarkable, producing perfectly ripe and healthy grapes. The harvests were spread out over the second week of September.

WINEMAKER'S NOTES
Beautiful deep and brilliant pale yellow color. Powerful nose accompanied with citrus and mango notes. The slightly mineral feature is pleasant and original. The harmony, volume and nice acidity in the mouth give freshness and vividness. A persistent and pleasant finish with notes of white peaches.

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.
