Château Bauduc Sauvignon Blanc 2021
We now have (reasonably) good stocks of the new vintage of Château Bauduc's Sauvignon Blanc. It is Angela and Gavin Quinney’s flagship wine that is sold on allocation, and we can never get enough - such is the demand from among others Rick Stein and Gordon Ramsey. Their 2021 Sauvignon Blanc is, in my opinion, the best they have made and I have been drinking it for 25 years now. The weather at the vintage was perfect allowing them to pick their sauvignon (95%) and semillon (5%) at its optimum ripeness. The result is a gloriously sophisticated, rich, creamy and fresh wine but still with that sauvignon bite that doesn’t overwhelm the other complex flavours in the wine.
Similar to white graves? Yes, but much better than any at under £20 a bottle. Well done Angela and Gavin - a triumph this year. We are trying to increase our allocation but everyone wants it. A good reason to order a decent quantity now.

A terrific wine full of fruit, flavour and depth. A reliable everyday white and my favourite. A reminder of how good Bordeaux white can be
