White Bordeaux blends are typically a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, Muscadelle and a few other grapes from the Bordeaux banks. Although the white blends account for so little of the wine coming out of the region, they are quite popular, so we suggest getting your hand on a several bottles. Enjoy discounts, deals and free shipping to add this gem to your collection.
Most white Bordeaux blends are light and fruity with distinct flavors and aromas including grapefruit, lime, grass, honey and gooseberry. These lighter blends tend to be less expensive than the other rich and creamy blends from the same region. These creamier blends feature lemon, apple, pear, ginger, orange peel and caramelized flavors that make this blend a highly sought-after wine. Both variations are balanced and easy to drink seeing as they tend to have a lower acidity and milder fruity flavors than many of their white wine counterparts. Get the best of both banks when you shop for Bordeaux blends at Wine Chateau.
When it comes to hosting your next dinner party, think of fresh and green. Stay away from food pairings with a high acidity. A more toned down meal will allow the Bordeaux blend to stand out rather than be overshadowed. Try a dish with basil, avocado, lime or garlic to give your meal flavors that will complement the wine. A nice pasta dish with basil pesto instead of tomato sauce will pair nicely with this variety. Even a good guacamole would go well with a Bordeaux blend when you are lounging around with friends and flicks.
