K&L Notes

The wine just shines! Sauvignon Blanc (the base of the wine is zippy and herbaceous and has brisk acidity), Semillon (for body and structure), and Muscadelle. This wine is crisp and super focused on the palate. Minerals and earth with lemons and limes. According to Robert Parker: "Thanks to the talented oenological team of Denis Dubourdieu and his assistant, Christophe Olivier, Roquefort is generally one of the most interesting generic white Bordeaux."

    Oh what a wine! Chateau Roquefort Blanc, composed of 85% Sauv Blanc and 15% Semillon, is now my go-to seafood, or any food for that matter, wine. Right out of the gate the wine presents bright yellow fruit, lime, and orange peel. Followed by that is a surprisingly broad and expansive texture especially for a wine under $12. The aftertaste is briny and minerally, setting you up perfectly for that next bite of food.

    Chateau Roquefort is located on an old Gallic fort site built on the limestone plateau in Entre-Deux-Mers. This superb terroir gives us one of the best deals in Bordeaux blanc in the store. Made from 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Semillion, it is bursting with minerals and has beautiful yet precise lemon, lime and melon fruit flavors and a great acid line for a long satisfying finish. Whether you are looking for a patio pounder or a great food wine, this just can’t be beat for the price.

    If your Sauvignon Blanc playlist has Sancerre on repeat, it's time to change things up with something different that still hits the mark - like this gem from Bordeaux. It has invigorating citrus (grapefruit, orange zest) and delicate white flower flavors and aromas, but it's not weighty in body. It's rather crisp and refreshing on the palate with peppy acidity and an enduring finish. Try this paired with capellini pasta with sauteed garlic, pea tendrils, basil and shaved ricotta salata. Fab!

    The Roquefort Blanc achieves a perfect balance between the minerality and all the exotic tropical notes. The wine is rich and yet very crisp, with a beautiful note of guava, followed by pineapple and lime, lemon. This will be a fantastic pairing with moules frites, sweet-sour chicken, and a rich salad with some fruit in it. Endless possibilities.

    Still young, this wine is showing intense spicy and floral fruit aromas. Plenty of lichi fruit flavors. Hints of apples, pears and quince are all there. Great value.

    This screaming value is back in stock and better than ever. Citrus blossom, lemon verbena, melon rind and crushed grapefruit jump out of the glass as you taste. The juicy and lip smacking mineral laced finish goes on and on.
