2009 Château Lamothe de Haux Bordeaux Blanc
A beautiful Bordeaux Blanc with a bouquet of acacia, lime and fresh-cut grass. A blend of 40% Sauvignon Blanc with an equal amount of Semillon and 20% Muscadelle, the 2009 from Château Lamothe de Haux has the bracing minerality that makes these wines such terrific summer drinking. And this one is a particularly wonderful bargain.
Drink it as an aperitif, with chilled shellfish, Dungeness crab and sushi. Or a classic combination: with goat cheese.
Elegant and aromatic
