So along with all the other crazy stuff I was doing last Friday, there was the #PlanetBordeaux Virtual Tasting, rescheduled from last month.  Planet Bordeaux is a media group whose purpose is to tell the world all about the other wines of Bordeaux – not the big, expensive “classified growths” of Bordeaux, you know, Chateau Lafite-Rothschilds, Chateau Margaux, and 51 other Chateaux – no we are talking about the wines the rest of us common folk can afford but rarely get the kinds of accolades their more expensive siblings get.

My long time SM friend Mike Wangbickler from Balzac Communications once again reached out to me to participate in the event, and to taste through and review 8 terrific white and rosé wines, all clocking in at the $7-$11 price point (suggested retail price).

Chateau Ballan-Larquette Bordeaux Blanc 2011.  Grade=Very Good.  50/50 Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon blend; this shows off crisp lime, lemon and mineral notes.  Tart with sure-footed acidity.

Chateau Lamothe de Haux Grand Vin de Bordeaux Bordeaux Blanc 2011.  Grade=Very Good.  This blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and 20% Muscadelle gives you loads of lemon, fresh cut hay, quince and Clementine notes.

Chateau La Verriere Bordeaux Blanc 2011.  Grade=Very Good.  All Sauvignon Blanc, this gives you bright white grapefruit, lemon, quince and melon notes, touched up with a touch of thyme, mineral and lemongrass.

Chateau Thieuley Bordeaux Sec Grand Vin de Bordeaux Blanc 2011.  Grade=Very Good.  Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and 15% Sauvignon Gris, this really shines with herbaceous notes of lemon zest, Key lime, jalapeno skin and orange peel.  Lots of minerality and bracing acidity turn this into a stunner.

Cheval Quancard Reserve Bordeaux Blanc 2011.  Grade=Very Good.  A blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, this gives you a touch of lemon cream, pineapple and mineral.  Nice acidity gives it depth.

Michel Lynch Bordeaux Blanc 2011.  Grade=Very Good.  Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, you see some zesty citrus notes met with creamy vanilla and meringue undertones.

Dourthe La Grande Cuveé Bordeaux Rosé 2011.  Grade=Outstanding.  A blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, here you have lots of bright red cherries, strawberries and even a touch of raspberry, tempered with a slight herbal note, crushed wildflowers and mineral.

Le Rosé de Mouton Cadet Bordeaux Rosé 2011.  Grade=Very Good.  Predominantly Merlot with 20% Cab Franc and the rest Cab Sauvignon, this dry, cherry-themed pink gives you lots of mineral, red flower, and pomegranate notes.

Thanks to Michael and everyone at Planet Bordeaux for the invite.  I look forward to the next event.
