Continuing on my post on “Bordeaux under $30”, here is the second one in a series of fine values I discovered.
2008 Mouton Caudet Blanc
This Bordeaux blend is 50% Semillon, 40% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Muscadet.
Exhibiting bright pale lemon colour with glints of green and gold highlights. The nose is medium-plus in intensity
and has a rich variety of tropical florals and fruit, honey suckle and citrus. The palate is dry, smooth and expressive of ripe fruit, citrus and mango. It finishes with good length and refreshing tartness.
At $16.95 this is a lovely wine and ideal as an apperitive or sipper as well as with Seafood in a light cream sauce or poached white fish.
Alc. by Vol.: 11.5%
