White Bordeaux blend is a term Wine-Searcher uses to gather together wines blended from the three classic white-wine grapes of Bordeaux: Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle. In this blend, Sauvignon brings its trademark grassy aromas, while Semillon adds a touch of complexity and a waxy, honeyed note. Muscadelle, the lesser-known of the three varieties, contributes grapey aromas.

 

About This Item

White Bordeaux blend is a term Wine-Searcher uses to gather together wines blended from the three classic white-wine grapes of Bordeaux: Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle. In this blend, Sauvignon brings its trademark grassy aromas, while Semillon adds a touch of complexity and a waxy, honeyed note. Muscadelle, the lesser-known of the three varieties, contributes grapey aromas.

Classic white Bordeaux blends are pale gold in color, perhaps with flashes golden-green, and are characterized by aromas of citrus, grass and hay. Sweet examples, such as those made in Bordeaux's Sauternes, Cerons, Cadillac and Loupiac districts, show a range of honeyed lemon, orange marmalade, dried apricot and even preserved tropical flavors with (depending on age) secondary notes of sweet nuts and treacle.
