Close to 90 percent of the wines from Bordeaux wine-growing regions are red, but many of the same French producers are turning out bottles of white blends that would be well-suited to ring in summer (and often at lower price points). Château de Fontenille’s 2016 Entre Deux Mers is one such bottling; Ripe with tropical fruit and lychee on the nose, the wine balances a juicy profile with refreshing crispness from fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The vineyard that grows the Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris, Sémillion and Muscadelle grapes used in the blend was previously tended to for centuries by monks inhabiting the neighboring Abbaye de la Sauve Majeure. Pleasant and palate cleansing, this is a bottle to marry with a seasonal seafood feast. $13.97, winechateau.com
