May this fresh and energetic Bordeaux Blanc, composed of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Sémillon, help to fine-tune your wit at apt moments. L'esprit de l'escalier, or staircase wit, is a phrase the French use to describe that moment when you come up with the perfect retort, but a moment too late — you've left the situation and are heading down the stairs. With textbook citrus and herbal notes of lemon, grapefruit and grass prominently displayed on the palate, this wine is sure to keep those comebacks at the tip of your tongue. It's delicious on its own, but would also match well with goat cheese or herb-inflected fish dishes.
