White wine from Bordeaux? The category itself might seem like a paradox, but it’s actually more of a well-kept secret. For even if 90% of Bordeaux’s production is dedicated to vin rouge, it still manages to produce nearly seven-million cases of white wine annually, which can be every bit as distinctive as its iconic reds. And what’s more, because red Bordeaux generally steals all the attention, the area’s uniquely compelling whites fly under the radar, making them some of the wine world’s greatest bargains.
