White wines to buy now!
There’s the obvious association with winter and red wine, but here at Bordeaux Wines UK we believe white wine can be and should be enjoyed all year round regardless of the weather. Bordeaux might be famous for its reds, but the region produces a brilliant range of dry and sweet white wines.
We’ve picked four affordable dry white wines to buy and consume now – perfect for a date night, evening in with the girls or to take to a dinner party.
Château Bel Air Perponcher 2014
crisp and fruity AOC Bordeaux releases fresh gooseberry notes on the nose and reveals a rhubarb tang on the palate. Produced from mainly Sémillon grapes blended with some sauvignon blanc and Muscadelle in the Entre-deux-Mers region in south east of Bordeaux. It’s fresh and fruity disposition will pair perfectly with light fish dishes such as avocado and prawns or a fish terrine, as well as white crumbly goat cheese. All easy on the post-Christmas waistline.

Château Tour Léognan 2011
Produced in Pessac-Léognan, the region described as a “world class wine area” by Oz Clarke (see our interview here), Château Tour Léognan is a structured and generous dry white wine with a more serious, but elegant palate. Aromas of grapefruit, orange blossom and gooseberry offset its mineral style making it a great accompaniment to fish.
