Very light straw in the glass, the 2012 Secret de Grand Bateau Blanc opens on the nose with a pronounced floral component that melds nicely with notes of meyer lemon, tangerine and melon underscored by a dry stone-like minerality and hints of toasted almonds. The palate carries from the nose as expected, but is heightened by a trace of salinity and a streak of acidity that makes the wine crisp and enjoyable all the way through the long and zippy finish. This is a great wine for to serve up at the party as a crowd pleaser or with a variety of salads and seafood. It’s drinking nicely now and will continue to perform admirably over the next 5-7 years.

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!
