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"

Previous Vintages:

Château Bauduc Sauvignon Blanc (Bordeaux) 2019
A blend of 95% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Semillon, vinified in stainless steel, and listed as the house white in a number of top restaurants. A nice concentration in the glass, and a charming nose, although it takes an hour or so to really open up, moving from a slightly herby and grassy start to plentiful peach and apricot fruits, with a smoky core of crushed chalk. The palate follows the lead of the nose, with plenty of energy, a chalky and textural weight, with stone fruit notes as a nod to the ripeness of the vintage, but with nice acid freshness too. Already bottled, under screwcap, and good to go now. From my Bordeaux 2019 primeurs assessment. 92/100

Chris Kissack, thewinedoctor.com. June 2020.

Château Bauduc Sauvignon Blanc (Bordeaux) 2018
It is easy to forget, in the green and grassy world of commercial Sauvignon Blanc, that the variety is in fact an aromatic one. If you find yourself in need of a reminder of its status look no further than this wine; aromatically this is all lychee, kumquat and mango, a tropical fruit salad dusted with scented white chalk, with none of that grassy edge. It offers the same evocative fruit profile on the palate, with a glycerol-tinged texture, and happily it has a little tingle of acidity too, keeping it fresh, leading into a lime and buttercream finish. Rich in fruit and body, this will be a real crowd-pleaser. Bottled under Stelvin screwcap. From a 2021 Update. 92/100

Chris Kissack, thewinedoctor.com. January 2021.

'The Quinney family's 20th vintage sauvignon is a bosky, gooseberry, lime and lemongrass mouthful.'

Jane MacQuitty's Star Buy in The Times, £11.95, June 2020

Selected for 'best summer wine to buy now': 'This sauvignon blanc is dry and refreshing, with a subtle citrus note.

Will Lyons in The Sunday Times, June 2020

“These bottles were intended for Rick Stein’s restaurant, where Bauduc sauvignon blanc has been a stalwart of the list for many years now. Bordeaux sauvignon blanc is refreshing, nettly, citrusy and greatly under-appreciated by sauvignon drinkers. You’ll find some newer releases on the Bauduc site as well, with free delivery to England and Wales for orders of 12 or more bottles, though please order in multiples of 12.”

Victoria Moore's Easter Wine of the Week in the Telegraph, April 2020

"Bright, breezy sauvignon with ripe peach flavours, good depth and a long, dry finish."

Bordeaux Hot 50, 2020 selection.

"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."

Jane Anson's 'Top 10 Affordable Bordeaux Wines', Decanter 2018

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

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

"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."
