Tertre de Launay
2018 Entre-deux-Mers Blanc
Why We Love It:
Perhaps it was because we spent more time locked up at home than usual, but it seems the weather jumped pretty quickly from the last chilly remnants of winter into the intense heat and sunny bliss of summer.
Don’t get me wrong – we’re not complaining. And it’s with precisely those kinds of hot summer days that we introduce a delicious and fabulous value white wine, perfect for sipping on the dock or patio, but offering enough body and structure to lend itself to a variety of lighter fare at the table.
From salads and chilled soups, to BBQ chicken and pork, to grilled vegetable pastas and summer pizzas, this Entre-deux-Mers from Tertre de Launay is as versatile with food as it is delicious.
And at less than $15 per bottle, you’ll be hard pressed to find better white wine drinking value anywhere this summer. So get out and stock up on this value winner before it’s gone and enjoy it all summer long.
Recipes & Food Pairings:
This delicate and refreshing white blend is fabulous as an aperitif or served with light salty fingers foods before dinner, or all afternoon/evening on the patio. With food, this wine works best with fish, seafood, chicken and salads. Here are a few bits of culinary inspiration:

“Entre-Deux-Mers, where this wine is grown, literally means ‘between two seas’ and actually refers to the famed Garonne and Dordogne rivers. This wine is made from Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle and offers crisp citrus character along with notions of exotic tropical fruit, with brilliant acidity from start to finish. Sip with green salads or seafood..”
