Gavin & Angela Quinney have produced an exceptional Sauvignon Blanc at Château Bauduc that would put many far more expensive white Graves to shame. 

This has been the long-standing house wine at Gordon Ramsay's three Michelin star restaurant in London, a 'special selection' at Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant in Cornwall and the prestige house white at Hotel du Vin across the UK. 

A long, dry summer followed a wet spring, so the September harvest of 95% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Sémillon was of super quality.

Château Bauduc is our best selling white wine and stocks are now limited for the 2018 vintage. 


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.

"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

“A crisp, unoaked white. Unlike the wines of Marlborough, Bordeaux sauvignon blanc has gentlemanly understatement. Think unripe nectarines.” - Victoria Moore, The Telegraph

"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)

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

"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
