Some relatively inexpensive dry white bordeaux
25 Oct 2006 by JR
Below are tasting notes on several dozen relatively well-priced dry white bordeaux that are currently available. They were tasted blind in early July (sorry - I meant to publish these notes earlier) and are listed by appellation then alphabetically by name, with the 2005s before the 2004s where appropriate. As you can see, my favourites were the very unformed Ch Cruzeau 2005 Pessac-Leognan and Ch Mouret 2005 Graves but very few of them seem to promise a particularly long life. Probably best value is the Ch Thieuley range, in particular the Cuvée Francis Courselle, both 2004 and 20005 – all very well made wines.  ...
