2016 White Wine from Bordeaux and Caviar

2016 Chateau De Fieuzal and Siberian Sturgeon Caviar

2016 White wine from Bordeaux is a great pairing with Lady Elena Caviar. In the above picture is Siberian Sturgeon Caviar sustainably farmed in Italy.

Chateau De Fieuzal from the Pessac-Leognan region in Bordeaux France has produced another great white wine in the 2016 vintage.

The 2016 Chateau De Fieuzal white wine is a blend of 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Semillon. The wine offers subtle aromas of white peaches, melon and some grassiness. This flows through the palate with softness and with tension. It has a long floral finish that has a touch of minerality shining through.This is a wine made to last many years.

The tension of the melded acidity and the mineraltiy makes this a great Lady Elena Caviar pairing.

Macari Vineyards LIFEFORCE Sauvignon Blanc with Caviar

2016 Macari Sauvignon blanc with Siberian Sturgeon Caviar

The Lady likes her New York State wines and the wines from Macari Vineyards are on that list.

May the LIFEFORCE be with you and in your glass. We are talking about the Macari Vineyards LIFEFORCE Sauvignon Blanc wine.

During the wine making process there are no oak barrels or stainless steel tanks used but there are concrete eggs. This 100% Sauvignon Blanc wine ferments in large egg shaped cement vessels. The use of the cement eggs doesn’t change the flavors of the fruit like oak can but gives the wine more body and more integration.

The wine offers light grassy and tropical notes. On the palate, it is fresh and smooth along with grapefruit pith and tropical undertones. The wine finishes with the refreshing acidity of a Life Force.

For the favorite wine of the day, they were all good.
