More about this wine from Bordeaux, France
The word Bordeaux just screams iconic French wine. Images of baguette, cheese, foie gras, berets, and sexy French accents cloud the mind. Bordeaux feels like it should be dotted with family wineries with a rich history, but in the past few decades, it has become more known for mega-wineries and fancy sports cars aka a wine paradise for the 1%. But Jean Marc Barthez is the antithesis and the quintessential, old school “dirt-under-the-fingernails” winemaker leading a vagabond crew of family-owned vineyards and winemakers that are making Bordeaux wines for everyday drinking!

Barthez shows us his wine skills with this Sauvignon Blanc that is fermented without oak to preserve the underlying expression of classic Bordeaux terroir! Terroir is just winespeak for wines tasting like the land and culture of a region where they were actually made. The juice has a cleansing acidity and flavors of citrus and melon. It possesses the deeper texture, elegance, and richness of body that are the region’s hallmarks. Your sips will be full of citrus, melon, zesty liveliness, and clean crisp-ness!

Eating...

A lazy cheese plate... Triscuits and some super creamy goat cheese as you fall on to your sofa on a Tuesday night when the work day was just too long to make any sort of extra effort.
