Mary Taylor's Jean Marc Barthez Bordeaux Blanc 2017 Review

This is the way it should be done! So much Bordeaux Blanc is neutral and forgettable, even if they are good wines, so when this wine hit my palate, I jumped for joy. This wine has impeccable balance, with just a dollop of sémillon, yelling for you to cold max relax and take in the day. Lemongrass and flecks of bell pepper greet you under a vibrant layer of wet-stone minerality and an acidity that makes you feel like the wine is dancing on the palate. There is a simplicity to this wine that I find so gratifying, so let's meet on the porch and I’ll have a few ready; especially at only $13 a bottle. Buy a case.
