    Green apple, pineapple, lemon zest, with a pretty floral note that suggests Sauvignon Gris is hiding in there undisclosed. Medium plus acidity with weight and texture. Bordeaux Blanc for the win!

    A very exuberant Bordeaux Blanc I must say, with very tropical notes of pineapple, mangoes, along with peaches and perfectly framed by a juicy acidity. Outstanding. This wine would work wonders as a pairing with say, Thai food...

    Pessac-Leognan makes some of the finest dry whites in the world, and most of them are a very good value for money. The 2014 De France Blanc is a fantastic example of this. I think one would be hard-pressed to find a white Burgundy or California white at this price that was even in the same league. Although predominantly Sauvignon Blanc, the 20% Semillon is front and center in this honeyed, full-bodied yet completely dry white. The great 2014 vintage is renowned for dry whites for a good reason, this is concentrated, long finishing stuff!

    The 2014 Chateau de France Blanc, Pessac-Léognan $24.99 is a blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon. The wine is generous and rich in style, with barrel aging and regular batonnage adding both flavor and texture. It explodes with exotic, tropical fruit – guava and fresh pineapple. Brisk and bracing, a lively acidity keeps the wine from becoming ponderous.
