BORDEAUX: THEY ALSO PRODUCE AMAZING WHITE WINES!

Bordeaux is known world wide for their Red Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. But did you know that they used to make more White wines before? And the popular Sauvignon Blanc originates from this famed region. Originals are always the best!

Being consistent with what they do best, Bordeaux Blancs are also all about their blends. A Bordeaux Blanc is composed of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. This classic blending gives us some of the best age-able and long lived white wines in the world! 

Let’s Drink White Bordeaux!

With the resurgence of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes in the new world, we should stop and go back to its Spiritual homeland of France! So if you want a break from the Chardonnays of Burgundy, pick up a bottle of Bordeaux Blanc to refresh your palate with something new!

Undisputed Top Bordeaux Blancs!

Haut Brion Blanc 1996
5/5!
Super Long Finishing

One of the best producers of Bordeaux Blanc, Haut Brion Blanc deserves the full attention of Bordeaux lovers.

Nose was quite muted initially, but turned dried honey and honeysuckle about 30 mins later. The content is of good complexity; every sip, there are multiple characters beyond descriptions. Primarily dry tobacco leaves and unsweetened honey, the finishing coupled with the multi-layers of complexity was almost endless. I can still get the flavor after a long gone sip, really amazing.”

ONLY THE BEST AT $1050!

First Growth Status in both Red & White!

Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc 2010
5/5
White Lily of Smith Haut Lafitte

“I once hosted a dinner with chateau owners Daniel and Florence Cathiard of Smith Haut Lafitte with some of our customers. Cathiards bought SHL in 1990, and attained pinnacle wine making skills in 25 years time, which was short for great vineyards. Graves produced one of the best Bordeaux whites, and SHL represented the Graves very well. I get a lot of white lilies, summer flower fragrance in this white. Totally amazing, the quality was so good! I fell in love with them!
