Château Chavrignac Bordeaux Blanc '18

When was the last time you had a glass of White Bordeaux?  It is seldom often that we find one on the shelf or on a wine list.  One of France's great whites, comes in a multitude of styles from light and fresh, to oaked and rich. Bordeaux Blanc typically includes Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle as the primary varietals in this classic blend.  In the southern part of Bordeaux is Entre-deux-Mers, where Bordeaux Blanc thrives, and where you can find Château Cavrignac.

Château Chavrignac has been certified organic since 1964.  They are considered one of France's pioneers for organic farming.  As of 2017, they also became certified biodynamic. This Bordeaux Blanc is a blend that consists of 50% Semillon, 30% Sauvignon Gris and 20% Sauvignion Blanc.  The wine spends a brief time in contact with its skin, as well as lees aging in tank for a few months.  The wine shows brilliant natural texture, with soft edges and a clean, slightly chalky mouthfeel.  The fruit is bright with hints of fresh pineapple and subtle floral tones.  

Bordeaux Blanc is a great white for cooler weather, as it lends itself texturally with a modest palate of ripeness and richness.  This wine is capable of being served in a versatile manner, between being enjoyed as an aperitif as well as a wine that could be paired from salads to poultry.  From start to finish, Château Chavrignac is here to accompany you!
