2018 Buty Columbia Valley White Bordeaux Blend (Previously $25)

SKU #1535271 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Most Bordeaux-style white wines from Washington are Sauvignon Blanc heavy. This one flips the script, along with a heavy dose of Muscadelle that a few wineries in the state are working with. The aromas bring immediate appeal, with notes of whole orange, fig, herb and lees. A full-feeling, textured, flavorful palate follows, redolent with fig flavors. A lingering finish caps it off. It's glorious with a long life ahead of it. Hard to keep your hands off now but will be best after 2023. *Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2020* (SS) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

Outer quote mark I like the tangerine and lemon aromas that flow down to the palate. Full-bodied with layers of fruit and a light tannin texture. It’s round, caressing and serious. 60% semillon, 21% sauvignon blanc and 19% muscadelle. Inner quote mark (3/2020)

A lovely bottle of white wine with so much character and depth. I love white Bordeaux-style blends, and this wine adds another level of aromatic complexity with the dollop of Muscadelle. Alluring perfume of citrus blossom, freshly baked lemon tart, exotic lilikoi, and plumeria flower scents transport me to the Hawaiian isles. It has a lovely tension between the racy, citrus Sémillon and Sauv Blanc components and the more tropical tones brought by the Muscadelle. The almost 40-year-old Sémillon vines give the wine depth and concentration plus a nice savory, stony underpinning. The Sauv Blanc adds vibrancy and a nice piquancy to the finish. An astounding value made all the more attractive when you consider this wine's proven ability to age beautifully, too. For a huge breadth of white wine drinkers, this is not to be missed, a truly engaging and delightful bottle now and for many years to come.
Top Value! Drink from 2021 to 2030
