Bordeaux White Varietal Blend

Wine Glass Cabernet.jpg
Serve in a Cabernet Wine Glass
A Bordeaux White Varietal blend wine is composed of the essential white grapes of the Bordeaux region: Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and Muscadelle. Colombard and Ugni Blanc are less common but could also be included in the blend. The majority of White Bordeaux wines are light, fruity, and cost-effective. If you want to get a little spendier, try the rich and creamy blends from the Pessac-Leognan region of France.
