Tasting Notes: White Bordeaux blend is a term Wine-Searcher used to gather together wines blended from the three classic white-wine grapes of Bordeaux: Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle. In this blend, Sauvignon brings it trademark grassy aromas while Semillon adds a touch of complexity and a waxy, honeyed note. Muscadelle, the lesser-known of the three varieties, contributes grapey aromas.
Classic white Bordeaux blends are pale gold in color, perhaps with flashes golden-green and are characterized by aromas of citrus, grass and hay. Sweet examples such as those made in Bordeaux's Sauternes, Cerons, Cadillac and Loupiac.
