Winemaker's Notes

I started the blend with a base of Semillon for its lush flavors of sun-ripened apricots and honeyed figs and added Sauvignon Blanc for its citrus and light herbal tones. So far, that's a classic combination in Frances Bordeaux region, but I blended in some Chardonnay to round the wine and lend a buttery citrus dimension. Finally, I put in just a dollop of Viognier, for its floral and light spice notes. I used the same winemaking techniques that I use for our Private Reserve Chardonnay. The final wine is complex layers of toasty, nutty, vanilla and butter aromas and flavors that interplay nicely with the varietal fruits.

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.

Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
