Baby Bordeaux Blanc

This little French gem is like a baby Bordeaux Blanc - meaning it's a classic blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon (with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon!). But this one is from a region a bit farther east of Bordeaux. It has body and a zip - the best of both worlds. It's partially macerated (the wine sits on the grape skins for a bit to give some grip and a boost of flavor), but doesn't drink like an orange - it just gives some plump. Its name references a Macedonian rite of passage: the courageous decision to leave home to find one's fortune.

Delicious With

Delicious with arugula salad with lemon and Parmesan, asparagus risotto, English pea ravioli with crab or lobster, or angel hair pasta with pesto.

Their Cred

In the heart of the Périgord, just east of Bordeaux, is a couple whose names you need to know: Thien Uyen Do and Florent Girou. A dynamic winemaking duo, Uyen and Florent each bring a distinct set of talents to bear. Florent has nearly two decades of winemaking experience, spanning from the Dordogne to Languedoc to Tuscany, and officially took over the family domain just four years ago. Uyen, his partner in farming and in life, is so invested in the biodiversity of their terrain that only half of their twenty five hectares has been planted to vines. Together, their vines have been vite maritata — an ancient grape-growing technique in which vines are trained on trees instead of wooden stakes. In this case, four thousand trees along with medicinal herbs.
