Classy and elegant dry white with subtle notes of green apple, elderflower and citrus. Mid-weight, pure wash of chalky minerals, gooseberry and pea pod. Deliciously-clean and uplifting flavours - very precise and well-made wine.
Drink chilled on its own or match with Thai fish cakes, gambas pil pil or warm goats' cheese salad.
Gavin Quinney's Blanc has been the house white at Gordon Ramsay’s three Michelin star restaurant for the past twelve years, a ‘special selection’ at Rick Stein’s for a decade and, more recently, the house white at the über-trendy Hotel du Vin. The wine comes from 25 acres of Sauvignon Blanc vines that surround the Château itself. Harvested at dawn before being cool-fermented in stainless steel and bottled under screwcap, the wine shows amazing freshness and aromatics.
Oz Clarke’s Wine Buying Guide: “Excellent red, white and rosé, all marked by their sheer drinkability. Affordable, approachable, Bordeaux needs another 100 Bauducs - and fast.”
John Wilson, The Irish Times: "Gordon Ramsay uses it as his house wine, Rick Stein has it on his list and I’ll have another glass please"
