That’s right – Bordeaux Wines don’t have to be expensive and they certainly don’t all have to be aged for 20 years before you can pull the cork. We care about what you drink, and we realize that not everyone has the same budget in their pocket when they’re looking at what wines to buy – that’s why we’ve come up with this list. Here you’ll find a variety of exceptionally good Bordeaux Wines than can be found across the USA and online. Introducing the ‘Everyday White Bordeaux’.
Jean Médeville et Fils Bordeaux Blanc
Blend: 40% Sémillon, 50% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Muscadelle
Tasting Notes: A delicate balance of pear and apple and combined with a slightly more zesty and acidic backbone. Passionfruit, lemons, and orange rind balance out the softer elements of the wine leading into a prolonged herbal finish. This would be ideal for lighter white fish dishes or when spring vegetables are on the table.
AltO de Cantenac Brown Bordeaux
Blend: 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Semillon
Tasting Notes: Aged for 1 year in French Oak, the aim was to create a wine reminiscent of Sancerre – you can expect a plethora of minerality with beautiful stone fruit aromas, a slight kick of acidity and a well-rounded palate that ensures this is an everyday pleaser regardless of the occasion.
Château Sainte-Marie Vieilles Vignes Entre-Deux-Mers
Blend: 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Sémillon, 5% Muscadelle.
Tasting Notes: Fresh meadow flowers waft around the glass, as if you’ve walked into a spring meadow. Freshly cut grass lingers, transforming slowly into peach, apricot and finally a touch of citrus and line. An extremely fruit forward and floral nose and taste that offer the perfect combination of freshness and crisp acidity in one.
‘Le G de Château Guiraud’ Bordeaux Blanc
Blend: 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Semillon
Tasting Notes: Crisp and refreshing notes balanced out due to barrel fermentation for just over half a year. A lot of depth and a nice complexity – a clean refreshing minerality, squeezed lemon and apple linger on the nose, with a little fermented spice, cinnamon, maybe nutmeg. The palate and mouthfeel are smooth, there’s great texture and you can expect to find hints of peach, apricot, gooseberry and even a little brie.
L’Abeille de Fieuzal Blan Pessac Léognan
Tasting Notes: An unquestionable freshness erupts from the bottle from the moment you pull the cork. Notes of freshly cut grass, toasted brioche are mixed alongside lemon rind, bitter orange and slight pink peppercorn touch.
