Chateau Reynon, Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc 2013, France
In some ways the fine white wines of Bordeaux are a bit of an insider’s secret – certainly compared to their red counterparts – with the wines often representing excellent value for money. This comes from the family estate of ace white wine ‘flying winemaker’ Denis Dubourdieu. It is made in big old wooden barrels, so oaky aroma and flavour is minimal, though there’s a soft sheen of cashew or oatmeal to the pristine grapefruity aromas, just a touch of nectarine beneath. On the palate it marries slicing acid alertrness with a creamy, weighty texture and that perfectly clear-toned and elegant fruit. A lovely wine, and also available in half bottles.
