Château Fage Blanc, Graves de Vayres, Bordeaux 2020
The cold winter weather of January is the perfect backdrop for drinking a white wine with more texture and flavor as compared to the lighter wines we often enjoy in the warmer months. The white wines of the Bordeaux region are often overlooked when considering a richer, more textured white wine from around the world. Château Fage blanc is a blend of mostly Sauvignon Blanc with a portion of Semillon. The wine is driven by flavors of ripe and dried citrus fruits, baked apples, spiced peaches, honey, and field flowers. This classic Bordeaux blend is ideal for more savory flavors and richer menu items including pork, veal, and roasted vegetables.
