From one of Bordeaux’s most prestigious red wine estates comes this extremely limited Bordeaux Blanc produced from eight parcels of the historical Lynch Bages terroir in Pauillac. What started out as a two barrel experiment to share with friends back in 1978 became a full-fledged wine in 1990 with the introduction of this Bordeaux Blanc Sec.

Tasting Notes

Deep garnet-purple in color, it soars out of the glass with a magnificently expressive nose of blueberry compote, black cherry preserves and blackcurrant pastilles, plus suggestions of dark chocolate, licorice, tar and violets with a waft of hoisin. The medium to full-bodied palate is just as impactful as the nose, coating the mouth with juicy black berry and spicy layers, supported by firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long with a refreshing earthiness coming through at the end.

Food Pairing

Perfect to be paired with grilled beef. Also quite enjoyable with roasted, braised or grilled meats like veal, chicken and game, as well as dishes with mushroom or earthy, truffle flavors.
