Chateau Puyanche Francs Cotes de Bordeaux Blanc 2018
Wine Enthusiast: Designated Editors' Choice. "Baked-apple and wood aromas show strongly in this ripe wine. Balancing the toastiness, the ripe fruits are complex, peach and apple flavors going along with the spice. Drink now." Mar 2020
Trade Notes: "This stunning white proves that great Bordeaux doesn’t have to break the proverbial bank. And that sometimes, the most soulful and interesting bottles—like this beauty—come from less-well-known parts of the famous region.
Pale lemon color. Bright and aromatic, with lively fresh lemon, green pear, lemongrass, cedar, yellow flowers, and hints of vanilla. Crisp and mineral-driven on the palate, there is a subtle roundness of hints of toasted oak that give textural complexity to fresh citrus and tree fruits. The finish is clean and refreshing, leaving one thirsty for more. Drink now - 2023."
