Tasting Notes

A Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon blend, this Bordeaux blanc is an absolute K&L favorite. Bracing acidity melds with ripe yellow apple and fig to satisfy any white wine lover's thirst. Pairs with anything from Mozzarella Caprese to grilled fish. This wine loves to be enjoyed with great company.

    Always one to direct customers to the less obvious choice, this is something I recommend when I am approached for a Sauvignon Blanc from France. Everyone knows Sancerre in the Loire, but more people should be asking for this white Bordeaux on the regular. It is invigorating and fresh, with notes of pear, lemon and oro blanco. The texture is round but not dense, there is a good core of acidity and a persistent finish. The next time you're looking for a wine to go with sushi, take this with you.

    Our friends at l’Avocat have been making excellent wines since 2002, and the 2017 is no exception. The vines for the white l’Avocat are located in a terroir of large stones and it is considered one of the best in the grave appellation. The encépagement consists of 50% Sémillon, 40% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Sauvignon Gris. The richness of the Sémillon, is counterbalanced by the freshness and aromatics of the Sauvignons, Blanc and Gris. It is round and balanced, and would be a perfect pairing with seafood, fresh water fish, and the likes – especially with a creamy sauce. You just have to try a bottle.
