One of our most popular whites from one of our favorite importers, Kermit Lynch. This Bordeaux Blanc appeals to just about everyone. The wine is bone-dry, even if your first whiff of sunny, slightly tropical fruit leads you to expect otherwise. On the palate, it is luscious and mouth-coating with generous passion fruit and lychee, and yet it is racy at the same time—constructed along a sturdy spine of chalk and acidity, it bears the classic Sauvignon Blanc notes of lime and grass.
60% Semillon, 35% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Muscadelle. Vines range in age from 45-48 years old. The wine is vinified and then aged in stainless steel for 6 months. It is bottled without filtration.
This is the perfect go-to white for a hot day. Drink it like mountain spring water and/or pair it with anything from fish to poultry, picnic fare to Indian curries.
Kermit Lynch calls the wines of Hervé Dubourdieu "among our best values for decades."
