A refined and elegant dry white from Angela and Gavin Quinney at this picturesque chateau in Bordeaux at the end of a tree-lined drive. We have just secured another parcel of the 2016 Sauvignon-Sémillon as the weather was too poor in 2017 (frost!) for the Sémillon, hence they have not released any Sauvignon-Sémillon from 2017. The Sémillon gives the blend added depth in texture and body much like a really good Graves, while the Sauvignon provides freshness and lift. A great food wine and as with all Bauduc wines, it is brilliant value for money. Selected as a previous Wine of the Week by Jancis Robinson

“Bauduc Blanc is the Holy Grail… and, dare I say it, what weshould all taste to remind us what Sauvignon Blanc should be like!” - Matthew Jukes.


"What I liked about this wine was its crystal clear, particularly precise, piercing nose followed by attractive smokiness and good palate weight. In fact this has so much extract (no excessive yields here) that there is just a tiniest hint of the oiliness of some white Graves, but it rises above this to be a thoroughly fine dry white bordeaux (and it’s much cheaper than most white Graves)… It would make a lovely wine at the table. Excellent value.” - Jancis Robinson MW, Wine Of The Week on previous vintage


"The zeitgeist of white wine drinking—the Bauduc whites hit it bang in the middle", "Affordable, approachable, Bordeaux needs another 100 Bauducs - and fast.” - Oz Clarke.
