2016 L'Esprit de L'Escalier Bordeaux Blanc

This fresh and energetic Bordeaux Blanc, composed of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon, shows textbook citrus and herbal notes of lemon, grapefruit and grass prominently on the palate. It's delicious on its own, but would also match well with goat cheese or herb-inflected fish dishes.

Aging wine in French oak barrels tends to add subtler, spicier characters and flavors, while American oak barrels lend more overtly sweet flavors and a creamy texture. American oak barrels are required for the aging of bourbon and rye.
