Château Bauduc Sauvignon Blanc 2020
Château Bauduc Sauvignon Blanc 2020 is now at its best - delightfully fresh and crisp with sauvignon (and a touch of semillon) flavours that set it apart from the chasing pack. Château Bauduc competes with good white Graves but at a much more affordable price. Besides being delicious on its own, it has the quality, body and flavour to be an excellent food wine (they have provided the house white wine at Gordon Ramsay and Rick Stein's restaurants for many years, as well as many others).

How does the wine taste?
The 2020 vintage is a classic Bauduc with that distinctive Bauduc sauvignon flavour blended with a hint of semillion to add body weight and that extra X factor that makes it so special.
What do the critics say?
Here's an assessment of reviews from previous vintages.
"The Quinney family's sauvignon is a bosky, gooseberry, lime and lemongrass mouthful.
Jane Macquittys Best Buys, The Times
"Selected for 'best summer wine to buy now': This sauvignon blanc is dry and refreshing, with a subtle citrus note."
Will Lyons, The Sunday Times
"These bottles were intended for Rick Steins restaurant, where Bauduc sauvignon blanc has been a stalwart of the list for many years now. Bordeaux sauvignon blanc is refreshing, nettly, citrusy and greatly under-appreciated by sauvignon drinkers."
Victoria Moore's Easter Wine of the Week in the Telegraph
"Bauduc Blanc is the Holy Grail for those of you who cant get the pot pourri and fruit salad notes out of your olfactory system left behind by chemistry set, bulk-bottles Sauvignon. It is classy, elegant, nerve-tingling and, dare I say it, what we should all taste to remind us what Sauvignon Blanc should be like!
Matthew Jukes, The Week and Money Week
A thoroughly fine dry white Bordeaux. It would make a lovely wine at the table. Excellent value.
