Learning to Love French Wines – a white blend from Bordeaux
“Give me books, French wine, fruit, fine weather and a little music played out of doors by somebody I do not know.” – John Keats
The region of Bordeaux is best known for its hearty red wines including Cabernets and Merlots that hail from Médoc, Graves and Pomerol. 80 – 90% of the wines produced in Bordeaux are red. Tucked in the southernmost region of Bordeaux is a vast expanse of forested land known as Entre-Deux-Mers. The appellation for this region offers us a different focus with it’s white wines taking the lead in sales and recognition. Today I will highlight an excellent wine for the summer, Château La Rose de Vitrac.
Château La Rose de Vitrac is a blend of Sémillion and Sauvignon Blanc. This white blend has a surprisingly light taste in comparison with other whites from the Bordeaux region.

PositiveVines‘ HelpfulTip: Appellation is a legally defined and protected geographical area that is used to identify where the grapes for a particular wine were grown.
Château La Rose de Vitrac starts with a light melon taste with hints herbs and lemon flavors rounding out the experience. It is a zesty wine that is an excellent value at $8-$9 a bottle. Don’t let the low price make you think that this isn’t a quality wine. This is a great every day drinking wine that you don’t have to break the bank to enjoy. You can find it in a variety of wine and spirits stores. It pairs nicely with fish, fruit and cheeses. Be sure to try this one. It may become a summer favorite!
