Sauvignon Blanc from Bordeaux is unique in that it's crisp & minerally without the flagrant lemon-lime of most. The Semillon adds elegance and great aroma. Serve as an aperitif or with buttered sole.

Jean Marc Barthez, his wife Eliane and their children work their property and their vineyards with the greatest attention and experience of generations of winemakers. On May 25, 1935, at the fairground of Monségur, a handful of wine growers at the Café du Commerce discussed their respective difficulties and their mutual inability to afford necessary hardware purchases for viticulture and vinification. They decided to come together, pooling their financial and human resources. Fifteen growers pioneered this union to form the Cooperative Monségur. Soon, other growers joined. Through the ups and downs of subsequent years, including a world war, these growers stood strong together. Today, Jean Marc Barthez is the president of this union.

The undisputed king of France's wine regions, Bordeaux sits amidst and astride the rivers Dordogne and Garonne. Accounting for some 800 million bottles produced each year, Bordeaux has built its reputation on quality, with some of the world's most sought-after wines being crafted along the river banks. Bordeaux also creates a large amount of table wine, mostly sourced from the lesser of Bordeaux's 57 appellations. Bordeaux boasts over 10,000 winemakers. Known mostly for the red blends, Bordeaux also enjoys notoriety for its excellent sweet white wines, as well as several high-quality dry whites created mostly in the central regions between the two rivers.
