In the second in our series of Bordeaux (Regional Focus) Wine Therapy sessions we are covering a lot of ground with dry and sweet whites either side of some of our favourite reds from the communes of Margaux and Pessac Leognan (Graves).Latour-Martillac is a crazily good value, over-performing Grave white which is guaranteed to have you wondering why there isn’t more dry white Bordeaux in your fridge or cellar. Margaux, often regarded as responsible for the most aromatically complex Medoc wines, is represented by two favourites, a supple and maturing Giscours, and the stellar Rauzan Segla whose ascendance into Bordeaux’ front rank was confirmed by this 97+ point wine, perhaps the estate’s best ever? Then it is Pessac’s turn with two of its top stars – Haut by name, Haut by nature, including the 98 point SHL. Finally we turn to a favourite Sauternes, the most under-priced wine region in the world: 1er Crus for a shade over £50 a bottle!?! and with the Giraud 2009 one with just enough maturity to show some secondary development.
In our glasses:
• Château Latour-Martillac Blanc, 2016 (50ml)
• Château Giscours, 2011 (50ml)
• Château Rauzan Segla, 2016 (50ml)
• Château Haut Bailly, 2014 (50ml)
• Château Smith Haut Lafitte, 2016 (50ml)
• Château Guiraud, 2009 (50ml)
