2016 Bordeaux Blanc

Château Ducasse

2016 Bordeaux <i>Blanc</i> Château Ducasse - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
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.

About Bordeaux

Often considered the wine capital of the world, Bordeaux and its wines have captured the minds, hearts, and wallets of wine drinkers for centuries. For many, the wines provide an inalienable benchmark against which all other wines are measured.

Bordeaux is divided into three winegrowing regions with the city that gives the region its name in the near geographical center. The “right bank,” or the area located east of the Dordogne River, produces wines that are predominantly Merlot with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The “left bank” is located to the west of the Garonne River and produces wines dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, with Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot.

The third region, Entre-Deux-Mers, lies between both rivers and produces white wines from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and Muscadelle. Though technically in the left bank, it is worth noting the appellation of Sauternes, which produces arguably the world’s most famous sweet wines from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and Muscadelle as well.

Though many top Bordeaux wines are sold en primeur (in advance of their bottling) and often through a middleman known as a negoçiant, Kermit has always preferred to purchase directly from the winemaker. For more than three decades he has sought out small producers, who make classic Bordeaux wines and are willing to play outside the negoçiant system. This ethic has led to longstanding relationships, excellent prices, and perhaps most important—wines of great value and longevity.

I want you to realize once and for all: Even the winemaker does not know what aging is going to do to a new vintage; Robert Parker does not know; I do not know. We all make educated (hopefully) guesses about what the future will bring, but guesses they are. And one of the pleasures of a wine cellar is the opportunity it provides for you to witness the evolution of your various selections. Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
