Description

Our 20th vintage Sauvignon Blanc with the Rick Stein signature label. The house white in Padstow and beyond. Currently out of stock so please order the Sauvignon Blanc 2019 classic label if you don't want to wait.

The back label: ’This was our 20th vintage and we were blessed with a dry summer and fine September harvest. A blend of 95% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Sémillon, our estate-grown dry white has been the house wine for Gordon Ramsay and Rick Stein for two decades. 13% vol.”

From Rick Stein's wine list: "Good friends of ours, Gavin and Angela Quinney, are making this exceptionally zingy Sauvignon Blanc wine from Bordeaux. As they say, so much Bordeaux white is bland and flat, this is a different matter altogether and is one of our special selections. - Rick"

Daniel and Nelly, who have worked with us in the vineyard and winery for all those years, reckon it's our best Sauvignon Blanc yet. It's certainly a serious wine, full of intense fruit and with plenty of character.

Previous Vintages:

“This scrumptious Sauvignon is packed with refined nettle and lemon grass zing”

Jane MacQuitty’s Best Buys in The Times, £10.95, 13 January 2018.

“A crisp, unoaked white. Unlike the wines of Marlborough, Bordeaux sauvignon blanc has gentlemanly understatement. Think unripe nectarines.”

Victoria Moore's 60 Best Wines for Christmas in The Telegraph in ‘Whites over £10'.

“The question I get pretty much more than any other is how to find reliable value in Bordeaux,” writes Jane Anson, Decanter’s Bordeaux critic. “This is a region with 110,000 hectares, with 6,568 producers declaring a harvest in 2016.

“The sheer bewildering choice is one of the reasons for paying a little bit more for a bottle of wine when looking for assurance over quality, but there are plenty of producers who manage to deliver it at lower price points.

“I taste through thousands of wines each year… and there are certain names that surface again and again – and cost no more than £30 a bottle and often under half that.

“This is a selection of the wines that make it into my fridge or on to the table regularly.

Chateau Bauduc, Bordeaux Blanc

“The classic unoaked Bordeaux white. Always difficult to suggest bottles from people that you know well, but the British Quinney family has lived in the Créon region of Entre deux Mers since 1999, and make a fresh, understated and extremely juicy white wine that matches well with food.

“This is a classic Sauvignon Blanc that has been the house wine for the Hotel du Vin, Gordon Ramsay and Rick Stein for many years.

“A quick walk through the vineyards here also tells you these steep slopes are perfectly exposed for maximizing the ripening sun.”

Jane Anson's 'Top 10 affordable Bordeaux wines' in Decanter.

“Gavin and Angela Quinney have created a very slick and successful operation at Château Bauduc outside Bordeaux - it says something that they supply the house wines for Rick Stein and Gordon Ramsay. The Château Bauduc blanc 2016 is 100% Sauvignon and made in the modern style, with attractive grassiness on the nose and enjoyable texture on the palate - it’s fresh but not thin.”

Harry Eyres, ’What to drink’ in Country Life, 17 May 2017 issue

“Chateau Bauduc Sauvignon Blanc 2016. 12%. www.bauduc.com. £11.
Englishman Gavin Quinney makes this sauvignon blanc at his estate 15 miles from Bordeaux and it's lovely - no wonder it's been the house white at Rick Stein's for years. Bright but gentle, crisp and modern but not pithy, just fresh with a lemon, elderflower and yellow nectarine taste. Class act.”

When we wrote to say thanks, Victoria replied:
“It is the most perfect wine. I feel like a specialist in £10 wines as I taste so many of them, and it hits exactly the beautiful spot. I love love loved it. And say any of that if you want.” Oh, alright then.

Victoria Moore, Telegraph 'Wines of the Week', August 2017.

Previous vintages:

“The nose pole-vaults out of the glass and embraces you with its citrus generosity. The palate is zesty, taut and refreshing with more depth than you might expect allowing you to shovel down some hastily prepared canapés to reward this delicious drink. Bauduc Blanc is the Holy Grail for those of you who can’t get the pot pourri and fruit salad notes out of your olfactory system left behind by chemistry set, bulk-bottles Sauvignon. It is classy, elegant, nerve-tingling and, dare I say it, what we should all taste to remind us what Sauvignon Blanc should be like!”

Matthew Jukes, The Week and Money Week

“A thoroughly fine dry white Bordeaux… it would make a lovely wine at the table. Excellent value.”

Jancis Robinson MW, Jancisrobinson.com

and one of our favourites:
“Without a shadow of a doubt, the best value white we have had all year is Château Bauduc, a crisp, white Bordeaux that we scoffed merrily both as an aperitif and with food. Apparently, it is the house white in Gordon Ramsay’s three-star restaurants, whoever he is.”

Pat Leahy, The Sunday Business Post (Ireland)
