Clos Floridene, Graves Blanc 2013

Clos Floridene is a classic dry white Bordeaux from the portfolio of the late Denis Dubourdieu. A blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle produces this phenomenal mix of concentrated…

Vieux Château Gaubert 2015

Firm aromas of red cherry and slight dusting of almonds. Light in structure but balanced and classic. Approachable and errs on side of freshness and elegance. A reliable name. Wine-Searcher…

Mayne du Cros 2015

Fresh, lightly and well balanced. Medium-bodied, effortless fruit that delivers a lot of pleasure. Wine-Searcher stockist search

Points 86

Well-fattened fruit but retaining a sense of lift and direction. A very attractive wine with plenty to say.

M de Malle 2015

Gooseberry and kiwi aromas, softly structured with some mouthwatering acidity that you don't find in all of the whites this year.

Les Hauts de Smith 2015

Such a striking nose – it has got to be one of the most recognisable white wines in Bordeaux.

Points 89

More powerful than La Chapelle this year. 57% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Cabernet Franc. Excellent tannin structure and very good quality fruit of great length. Beautiful bright reflection of…

A great-value white from the Olivier Bernard team. Lovely tension on display between exotic and citrus fruits.

Pretty and unforced fruit with firm but not slick tannins. 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, with a sense of freshness and charm. From the Olivier Bernard stable.

Points 87

Fairly rich expression of 65% Sauvignon Blanc with 15% Sauvignon Gris and 20% Semillon, with a dominance of rich, creamy fruits. Six months new oak for the Semillon and six…

Points 88

Sexy burnish of charcoal-grilled rich black cherry fruit with firmly held tannins. A lovely wine – fairly high powered compared to some; this is one to cellar for a while.…

Points 95

Clearly working in a reductive environment during ageing, emphasising a lovely sense of precision...

Points 95

Pure dark fruit with rich acidity. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc on gravel soils – organic. Has potential but closed now. 50% new oak. Part owned by…

Very pretty, creamy, fleshy citrus fruit – a classic even blend of Sauvignon and Semillon, 50% malolactic fermentation and ageing in barrel. Wine-Searcher stockist search

Clos Les Remparts 2015

100% Merlot wine from old vines, this is fermented in large oak barrels and comes in at 14%abv. Often enjoyable but not in full flow this year. Needs better balance…
