Day 1

Thanks for choosing the Assorted Table Advent Calendar Kit!


We are starting this journey off with a beautiful white Bordeaux! Cheers for taking on our 24-day challenge.

This dry Bordeaux Blanc is made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc. The wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel. A fresh and zippy white to start day 1 off right.


Temp Note: This wine should be chilled to about 45ºF / 50ºF. (Pop it in the fridge for about 3 hours and take it out 10 minutes prior to serving.) 



New Zealand: These wines, especially those from Marlborough, are highly aromatic with notes of ripe citrus and tropical fruit (grapefruit, lemon, lime, passion fruit, guava). Often contain herbal, cut grass or jalepeño notes. They are dry with moderate body and high acidity.

Loire Valley: These wines, especially those from Sancerre, are moderately aromatic with notes of tart citrus and stone fruit (lemon, lime, green apple, pear). They also have herbal notes of cut grass, green bell pepper. They are finished by high minerality.

Bordeaux (Unoaked Sauvignon Blanc):These wines are seeing a growth in production in Bordeaux. They forgo oak treatment, in favor of stainless steel tanks which make the wines more accessible in their youth. These wines often show the refreshing ripe citrus notes without being as fruity as New Zealand examples and have lovely herbaceous notes without being as savory as Loire Valley examples.

Bordeaux (Oaked Blends): The other popular style of dry white Bordeaux is the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon blend. Semillon adds depth and a richer texture to the wines, balancing the acidity of the Sauvignon Blanc. The acidity and vibrancy can further be tamed using new oak. This style of white Bordeaux is most prominent in the southern region of Pessac-Léognan.
