Château Bauduc “Les Trois Hectares” Blanc 2018

19.99

Description

A Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blanc of distinction – soft and rounded with a beautifully supple, dry texture – more subtle and elegant in its flavour-profiles and lower in acidity but with wonderful complexity and length. Winemaker Gavin Quinney: “Les Trois Hectares is a single, seven-acre block of old Sémillon vines which were planted in 1947, along with some Sauvignon Blanc (about 20%) in the same field.”

Seafood Linguine is the perfect pairing for this little stunner.

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 in London for the past nineteen years, a ‘special selection’ at Rick Stein’s for a decade and a half and, more recently, the house white at the über-trendy Hotel du Vin. Oz Clarke is a huge fan, stating, "Bordeaux needs another 100 Bauducs — and fast."
