Bordeaux’s reds grab all the headlines, but the region’s whites remain something of an insider’s secret. If you’ve never tried one, 2015 is a fantastic place to start. Top critic Antonio Galloni calls whites from this already-storied vintage “aromatic, bracing and absolutely delicious.”
This sophisticated find is a classic blend of Sauvignon and Sémillon, crafted by the Courselle family. With more than a century of winemaking experience, the Courselles know how to make elegant Bordeaux. They planted their five-acre Clos Sainte Anne vineyard over 40 years ago. With its southern-facing slopes (real sun traps) and deep gravel soils, it’s perfectly sited to grow concentrated, ripe grapes. Today, third-generation winemakers (and sisters) Marie and Sylvie are proving as much with their delicious wines.
Look forward to the intense, aromatic freshness of Sauvignon Blanc, rounded out by the rich, honeyed character of Sémillon. Smooth, well-balanced and complex, this Bordeaux Blanc makes a stylish aperitif, or a fine match for roasted chicken.
As with all top-quality Bordeaux, the Courselle family’s white is crafted in small batches. Hurry to secure your share.
