It just wouldnrsquo;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 mdash; 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.

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 itrsquo;s young and spry.

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.

This is a traditional blend of 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Seacute;millon and 20% Muscadelle. Refreshingly acidic and fruit forward, it is an excellent aperitif and pairs well with fish and oysters.

A full style, rounded and soft, with fresh white pear and plum flavors. It has a perfumed character from the 20% Muscadelle in the blend, which gives it ripeness but diminishes the fresh acidity.

Winemaker's Notes:

Gold color with green highlights Floral aromas and fruity aromas (hawthorn, grape fruit). Palate is round and fresh, slightly pearly wine. Crispy and long final. Best served as an aperitif or with oysters, mussels, grilled fishes.
