We announced the return of Château Bauduc, our best-selling white wine of last year, a fortnight ago, and promptly sold out within a day. The next pallet is due to arrive w/c 25th November 2019.

Their 2018 Sauvignon Blanc (with just a touch of Semillon) is wonderfully fresh and thoroughly deserves its stellar reputation. Château Bauduc has long provided the house wine in Gordon Ramsay and Rick Stein’s restaurants to name but a few as well as a favourite with all our customers.

Our Tasting Notes

Honey, lemon colour, a fresh sophisticated nose with excellent zesty citrus fruit. This fantastic dry white has great balance and acidity. Fresh, crisp and delicious with herbaceous and nettle notes in true character of this grape.The perfect food wine which is vouched for by both Gordon Ramsay and Rick Stein.

"I strongly commend it to you at the price… a thoroughly fine dry white Bordeaux… it would make a lovely wine at the table… Excellent value." - Jancis Robinson MW

"This scrumptious sauvignon is packed with refined nettle and lemon grass zing" - This week’s best buys, Jane MacQuitty, The Telegraph (11th January 2018)

"Vibrant and zesty, very modern Sauvignon from English-owned Château Bauduc, this sings in the glass with its pungent elderflower tempered by a blast of gooseberry and plenty of citrussy spark. In the mouth passion fruit and orange are bright and shimmering, yet something - a touch of peach, a hint of yellow plum - adds softer flesh before a pin-sharp finish" - Tom Cannavan, the

“It is the most perfect wine. I feel like a specialist in £10 wines as I taste so many of them, and it hits exactly the beautiful spot. I love love loved it. And say any of that if you want.” - Victoria Moore, The Telegraph
