2018 Bordeaux Blanc

Château Ducasse

Hervé Dubourdieu crafts one of the tastiest and most affordable Sauternes out there, which I cannot recommend more to those who enjoy the occasional sweet treat. However, given today’s overwhelming tendency to favor dry table whites, Hervé chooses to ferment the majority of the Sémillon, Sauvignon, and Muscadelle from his Sauternes-producing vineyards to full dryness for his Bordeaux blanc. It exhibits an exotic, citrusy perfume hinting at something rather luscious, then zips across the palate in a refreshingly restrained, refined manner. Hervé serves it with a platter of oysters on ice, but this white is really a passe-partout, delightful with a range of foods or whenever the mood strikes.

About Bordeaux

map of 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.
