Pale straw in the glass, this 2012 release leads with a floral nose of white spring flowers, lemon curd and baked apples with underpinnings of brioche and a minerality reminiscent of clay. On the palate the wine has a certain opulence to it and a pleasant viscosity that coats the mouth perfectly. The citrus and white fruit are front and center but the other elements are there too. This wine’s acidity is still very alive and makes for a crisp and refreshing white that will leave you wanting more. While it could go for another 5 years in the cellar, the reality is that it’s probably in its top drinking window right now making for a great immediate indulgence at a price that’s more than friendly. Pair with a cheese plate and good cheer.

The Secret de Grand Bateau has become one of JJ Buckley's most popular white wines, no matter the region. This white Bordeaux is composed of 100% sauvignon blanc and produced under the aegis of the winemakers at Chateau Beychevelle. This is a classic white Bordeaux that has been fermented in new oak and aged further for 6 months prior to its release. The ability of Beychevelle's winemakers to source the best fruit in the region has ensured that this wine is not a secret any more!
