Château de Marsan, AOC Bordeaux Blanc 2018: 89 PTS60% Sauvignon, 40% Sémillon. Superb balance between 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Sémillon, as the wine delivers both freshness and creaminess. Medium plus body with vivid fruit driven flavors makes for a superior by-the-glass Bordeaux white selection for restaurants looking for savvy purchases. Also worth noting is that the estate boasts the coveted Haute Valeur Environnementale (“High Environmental Value”) certification, which even many classified wines lack, in its commitment to sustainable viticulture. Bravo! Drink Until 2022.
Château Le Gardera “Le Ruisseau”,AOC Bordeaux Blanc 2018: 89 PTS
100% Sauvignon Blanc. Very agreeable expression of 100% Sauvignon Blanc that is certified organic. Pure expressions of lime, grapefruit and iodine, that come across rather creamy on the palate. Medium to full body but with vivacity. Drink Until 2022.
