Chateau Verriere 2021 Sauvignon Blanc, Bordeaux
I can never understand why people seem to forget about Bordeaux Blanc when seeking luscious Sauvignon Blanc. There is a nice rich texture to the whites from Bordeaux, often mixed with Semillon which can add even a little extra weight and curve in the mouth. This La Verriere is 100% Sauvignon Blanc and oh-so tropical! Peaches, guava, grapefruit, fresh herbs with a nice round mouthfeel and affair amount depth. Roast chicken, pork loin or broiled/grilled fishes would be wonderful with this curvy little number, but so would a plate of gooey, stinky cheeses and cured meats. Over delivers for the price.
