Before working for Kermit, I hadn’t really considered white Bordeaux as a category. I knew about Sauternes, but in my mind I could only conjure the elite reds that were so integral to the wine lore of the times. Red wine may have made the region famous, but even the Bordelais need white wines in their repertoire (they live close to the Atlantic, after all!). We’ve proudly imported the Château Ducasse blanc for decades, and among our value picks, it consistently draws in customers who end up requesting cases full of it. I guess it’s tough to tire of such a buoyant, joyful, and vibrant white: zingy passion fruit, ripe grapefruit, and salty minerality combine to create this perennial crowd-pleaser. It’s simply a leader in its class.

About The Region

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.
