Best in Show


Château Carbonnieux Péssac-Léognan Blanc 2015, Bordeaux, France $45.99 (only $39.09 with GOGO discount)

The 2015 Carbonnieux Blanc is a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon. It has a tightly wound grapefruit, white peach and citrus scented bouquet that slowly unfurls in the glass. Given a couple of minutes, it attains impressive harmony and focus. The palate is well defined on the entry, very crisp and pure, seguing into a saline finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. This is a very well-crafted Carbonnieux Blanc with class and poise. (90-92)pts Wine Advocate (Neal Martin, April 2016)

Friendliest


Three Brooms “Single Vineyard” Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Marlborough, New Zealand $17.99 (only $15.29 with GOGO discount)

Classic, sustainably-grown New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc! The light, crisp palate shows abundant grapefruit and gooseberry flavors, typical of Marlborough Sauv Blancs. This wine’s easygoing and extroverted nature makes it the perfect crowd-pleaser at a backyard BBQ bash.

Best Bargain


Domaine Bellevue Touraine Sauvignon 2016, Loire Valley, France $11.99 (only $10.19 with GOGO discount)

A longtime Bin-favorite bargain, this friendly French Sauvignon Blanc is fresh and invigorating. Hints of grass and tropical fruits mingle with lemon-lime and pink grapefruit on the light yet plump palate. This domaine harvests their Sauvignon grapes later in the season, ensuring full ripeness and giving more concentration in the final wine.

Most Interesting


Château Ducasse Blanc 2015, Bordeaux, France $17.99 (only $15.29 with GOGO discount)

While most white Bordeaux wines are more Sauvignon Blanc-heavy, this example from Ducasse is instead led by 75% Semillon, with just 25% Sauv Blanc. This results in a softer, more aromatic style of Bordeaux Blanc, showing notes of honeyed citrus on a fairly smooth palate.
