The Bordeaux blend has been copied with considerable success in many other wine regions, the ultimate compliment. The Left Bank of the Gironde River boasts the great Chateaux of the Medoc and Graves, whilst on the Right Bank, Saint Emilion (arguably the most beautiful commune) and Pomerol. Bordeaux is synonymous with the finest quality, predominantly in red wines though great dry whites are made in the Pessac Leognan, and most wine lovers will strive to taste the sweet white wines of Chateau Yquem and its neighbouring Chateau in Sauternes and Barsac.
The 2015 vintage of Chateau Malartic-Lagraviere Blanc is a blend of 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Semillon. This wine is crisp and refreshing with succulent length and full of juicy citrus fruit and green apple with undertones of sweet vanilla. This is ready to drink with light seafood, but there is room for growth over a couple of years!
