An equal-parts blend of biodynamically grown Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and Muscadelle, this delicate white comes from a property owned by Corinne and Jean-Michel Comme (technical director at the renowned, and far pricier, Château Pontet-Canet).
2017 CHÂTEAU LA RAME SAUVIGNON BLANC SEC ($15)
This bright, zesty Sauvignon Blanc– dominated white from the underrated Sainte-Croix-du-Mont appellation is full of fresh grapefruit notes and offers impressively concentrated flavors despite its modest price.
2016 CLOS DES LUNES LUNE D’ARGENT ($16)
From vineyards in Sauternes, the home of Bordeaux’s greatest sweet wines, this impressive dry white, full of melon flavors and textural richness, is made by the winemaking team from the acclaimed Domaine de Chevalier in Pessac-Léognan.
2015 CLOS FLORIDENE GRAVES BLANC ($24)
The late Denis Dubourdieu, one of Bordeaux’s greatest white wine consultants, founded this estate with his wife, Florence, back in 1982. Now it’s run by their children, and the quality hasn’t ebbed in the slightest— witness this lemon-grapefruity white, with its subtle vanilla notes.
