Save $3.25 (22%)
Crafted entirely from Sauvignon Blanc, the 2018 La Grande Cuvée Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc blanc is an elegant, aromatic and full-flavoured white wine. Pronounced citrus fruit aromas of lemon and grapefruit jostle with compelling mineral notes. The same characters are echoed on the appealingly generous palate, underpinned by lovely poise typical of Sauvignon cultivated on limestone, which leaves a lasting impression on the 2018 blend. Well-balanced and refreshing, the wine culminates in a long, aromatic finish. Pair with seafood, including oysters and prawns, shellfish (moules marinières), fish-based starters (marinated salmon, ceviche, Caribbean cod fritters, fish terrine), grilled fish, foreign foods (paella, Asian cuisine), cheeses including goat cheese, Comté and St. Félicien.
Fruity with orange and lemon-peel flavors, this wine is already delicious. A more herbal element gives the wine texture as well as a full character. This ripe wine with a crisp edge is ready to drink now.
