Les Caves Joseph 2006 Bordeaux Blanc

50% Sauvignon Blanc, 50% Sémillon. Picked it up at Trader Joe's for about $7. I'm not a white wine drinker, but it's been so hot in Oakland this summer, I've been dipping my toe in the white wine water, so to speak. I've read on and on and on about how white Bordeaux is so amazing, so I started cheap.

This wine is really nice - on the nose, coconut, citrus, and Caribbean fruits. In the mouth, soft lime flavors, a little bit of spice in the middle, and a smooth finish. Had it with cheese and fruits today, and before dinner. Was really nice, I'd definitely buy another bottle, for the price.
