2011 Baron Des Chatrons Bordeaux Blanc
Agent Red truly scored a stunner with today’s Maison Duhard 2011 Baron Des Chatrons Bordeaux Blanc. Wonderfully elegant, with a beautifully smooth finish, today’s wine is an exceptional 100% Sauvignon Blanc.
Loaded with refreshing citrus flavors and just ripened notes of white fruit, today’s wine drinks far above its weight class.
At only $15.99, this is a deal you won’t come across every day.
Beautiful almost honey yellow in the center of the glass.
Lovely aromatics of just ripened white peach and apricot mingle with sweet lemongrass, lime leaf, a touch of honeycomb, river rock minerality, and a subtle undercurrent of herbal notes.
Very bright and crisp on the palate, with just-ripened fruit flavors of Anjou pear, honeydew melon, and white peach laid overtop lime zest, orange oil, sweet vanilla, zesty citrus rind, and a gravelly minerality.
Easy drinking and incredibly smooth, with flavors that beautifully coat the mouth and a touch of acidity at the very end.
A garlic-seasoned prawn and asparagus puff pastry.
