Edmond Bordelon

Haut Brion’s neighbors are making some delicious white blends. This one has the acidity and minerality one would expect from this region. A tartness follows as well.

Lean and precise. Delicate citrus fruit and green beans. Weightless on the palate, yet briny and structured. Screams for oysters!

Waxen and pollenous, the white Bordeaux tastes of honeydew peel, shiny apple skin, and resin. Totally appealing, and a total steal.

Crisp and refreshing on the nose. The pyrazine component is coming right out of the glass, with fresh cut green glass, asparagus, cat pee, also there’s pineapple, peach and little bit passion fruit on the nose. Pretty light style with very thing on the medium- level. Palate confirms the nose with some citrus peel as well. Medium finish. Solid bottle. 2016 vintage

People (including myself) should just shut the fuck up and drink wine that is like this. I don't give a damn about pyrazines or whatever else people are saying in their tasting notes... this stuff states really delicious! The body is rich, and the acid is there. You won't not like it. Drink with me.

Hints of apricot, grapefruit, and blackcurrent bud. Lacks the acidic backbone and thus has baby fat that hurts the overall finish.

Solid bang for the buck. Everytime I drink White Bordeaux I wonder why I don't drink more of it.

Not overly complex, but solid. Great with salad. Patio pounder.

Simple French Sauv Blanc. But with a twist. The semillon rounds it out nicely. Hello summer.
