Lychee and wet slate on the nose. Tart, lemony, crisp, and nicely acidic on the palate. A bit of lychee again on the finish. Refreshing and crisp.

It just wouldn't be summer without those crisp, zesty Sauvignon Blancs, but many are just too light for those die-hard Chardonnay drinkers. Enter the white Bordeaux - blended with Semillon to give it more weight and richness, but still remaining super-fresh, it is the perfect compromise. Pair this one with shrimp salad, grilled sole or Italian pasta salad.

Crisp and refreshing without being too sharp, Chateau Lamothe Blanc is a consistently great buy. Medium- to light-bodied, the '07 is rounded and earthy from the 40% Sémillon blended with the Sauvignon Blanc. Fresh green pepper notes are highlighted by zesty lemon-lime on the palate. This wine was built to be served with food - try pairing it with oysters or mussels with a lemon butter sauce.

Located in the hilly region of the Premieres Côtes de Bordeaux on the right bank of the Garonne river in the charming town of Haux. Château Lamothe dates back to the 16th century. The cool sandstone caves that tunnel underneath the foundation of the property accommodate the cellars, where the wine ages at an optimum 56°-60° year round. Château Lamothe has 122 acres planted in vines; their white wine plantings consist of 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Sèmillon and 20% Muscadelle. This estate-bottled wine is well-balanced, with dry, delicious flavors.

(Barrel sample) This wine is fresh, layered with some attractive lightweight botrytis and delicate fruit. What it offers in accessibility it lacks in concentration, and will age fairly quickly.

The high percentage (40%) of Sémillon softens this wine, making it supple and round without losing the crispness of the Sauvignon Blanc. Bright tangerine and telltale gooseberry notes are balanced with honeysuckle and melon.

Reminiscent of springtime, this dry Sauvignon Blanc-based white offers a fragrant bouquet of wild flowers, followed by enticing flavors of passion fruit and key limes that finish with a clean and zesty blast.

A great buy! You can tell from the nose how super-ripe it is. Grapefruit, ginger, quince, and a whole slew of citrus oil aromas and flavors coalesce beautifully in this refreshing and vibrant Sauvignon Blanc, moving from in-your-face fruit, to tangy acidity, into a conclusive, pitch-perfect harmony. Enjoy it while it's young and spry.
