Chateau Bellevue White 2011
The vineyard which produces this wine in the Entre-Deux-Mers district of Bordeaux is owned by the Vicomte d'Amecourt, one of whose ancestors invented a steam-driven helicopter in 1863. I don't believe the thing actually flew, but the wine certainly does. A blend of Sauvignon Blanc (70%) and Semillon (30%), it combines peach, melon and guava elements, with just a very light touch of citrus. A very nice quaff, if you don't insist on something that's bone dry. $9.99.
