Château Bauduc ‘Les Trois Hectares’ Sémillon 2020

Description

Les Trois Hectares is a single, seven-acre block of old Sémillon vines which were planted in 1947.

An old vine Sémillon of real distinction, soft and rounded with a beautifully supple, dry texture. This is more subtle and elegant in its flavour-profiles, and lower in acidity, than the petit château’s signature Sauvignon Blanc, with wonderful complexity and length.

Seafood Linguine is the perfect pairing for this little stunner.

  • Supple, elegant, complex

Owner operators and English ex-pats Gavin and Angela Quinney fell for the lovely Château Bauduc, some 15 miles from the city of Bordeaux, in 1999. The house and the winery are surrounded by 25 hectares of pretty vineyards, where they grow Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon for their white wines, along with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc for the reds and rosé. Some of their older vines date from 1947 and the family have replanted or planted 15 or so hectares more since 2000.

The estate's Sauvignon Blanc has been the house white at Gordon Ramsay’s three Michelin star Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in London, and a ‘special selection’ at Rick Stein’s seafood restaurant in Cornwall, for the last 20 years. Oz Clarke is a huge fan, stating, "Bordeaux needs another 100 Bauducs — and fast."
