Best Bordeaux 2015 white wines

Bordeaux dry white wines can often be forgotten in a warmly received red wine vintage, but our critics found plenty of Bordeaux 2015 white wines worthy of recommendation.

The best Bordeaux 2015 white wines were to be found in Pessac-Léognan, according to Decanter’s Bordeaux 2015 scores released last week.

Smith-Haut-Lafitte’s 2015 dry white wine proved to be something of a surprise package by coming in level with Haut-Brion’s 2015 white, on 96 points.

Believe it or not, Bordeaux used to produce more white wine than red wine, as Decanter contributing editor Jane Anson highlighted in a recent column for Decanter.com.

Today, some critics worry about the encroachment of Sauvignon Blanc on Bordeaux’s signature white grape, Semillon. Yet, there has been something of a resurgence in recognition for Bordeaux’s dry whites in recent years.
