Armand Roux Verdillac 2011 Sauvignon Blanc Bordeaux Wine Review by Billy

Nose: Pineapple, Lime and Water Cracker
Palate: Lovely, spry mouth feel with a fantastic acid core and steely back that will slice through butter and cream leaving you fresh and ready for another bit of anything you have in front of you!
Finish: Granny Smith Apples give way to apricots and mint in a long lasting finish.
Overall: What an absolutely wonderful discovery!  I paid $9.99 for this at a local wine shop where it was recommended by the clerk.  I paired it after dinner with a creme brulee and it was magnificent.  It is a steal at this price.  This French Sauvignon Blanc is young, easy to drink and has all the nascent complexity and elegance of a more expensive white French Bordeaux.

Raise a Glass!
