Herve Dubourdieu is a perfectionist, and as such we are always guaranteed great wines, whether it is this easy-­to-love, dry white or his golden, succulent cuvees of Sauternes. Herve farms in the Haut-Barsac, a prestigious appellation and microclimate in Bordeaux. He blends 60% Semillion, 35% Sauvignon Blanc, and 5% Muscadelle into this blanc to achieve a gorgeous harmony between viscosity and acidity. Pale in color and streaked with vibrant minerals, the Ducasse blanc also has a juicy roundness. The combination makes for a wine that is easy to pair with many dishes-from lunch fare (quiches, salads, sandwiches) to shellfish. His blanc remains one of the benchmark values of our portfolio, continuing to punch above its price point. The 2016 vintage brings an extra bit of exuberant fruit to go with its habitual mineral snappiness, all delivered with Herve's trademark jazzy flair. –Anthony Lynch
