Critical Acclaim

"Features a whiff of matchstick before giving way to tangy citrus rind, pink grapefruit and salted butter notes. The long finish stays taut, with a pleasantly bitter almond and quinine profile. Offers an intriguing range of flavors and should settle in with some cellaring."
90 Points

"Approximately 7,000 bottles are made of this blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon. Lemon/lime/grapefruit dominate the aromatics. Medium-bodied with wet gravel-like scents this is a nicely textured wine with 5-7 years of aging potential."

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.
