This is a classic white Bordeaux blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon. It is softer than many of the popular, in-your-face Sauvignon Blancs out there, so it’s a good wine to share with friends who aren’t totally in love with SB yet.
It’s a light, refreshing wine with a bit of a floral nose. It’s crisp with apple and lemon (instead of grapefruit) — with its slight sweetness, this would be delicious paired with Thai food or seafood.
Available in the grocery store for around $7, I would call this a best buy!
The grapes are grown in a combination of clay and limestone soils.
Augey White Bordeaux is a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillion with fresh aromas of citrus, apples and a hint of gooseberry. The crisp fruity flavors pair well with fish, chicken, salads, or goat cheese.
The Wine Connection ( Vol. 16, Nov. 2, 2011) gave the 2009 87 points. “Haven’t tasted this one for a few years. Even better than before. Fairly light and crisp, but stands up with foods like fish and chicken. A great value.”
In September 2012, Wine Enthusiast Magazine awarded the 2010 an Online Exclusive Best Buy. “This is a wine that brings out a soft, tropical character allied to a citrus and a herbaceous element. It’s open, attractive and soft and its ready to drink.”
