First produced in 1947, BSE stands for “Branco Seco Especial” and is one of José Maria da Fonseca’s best known brands in Portugal. BSE is produced in the Setúbal wine region. Initially, the grape variety Fernão Pires gave the wine a fruity, distinctive aroma and a soft, dry palate. Nowadays, the blend has a predominance of the Antão Vaz grape, keeping its fruity aroma, elegant and velvet, with a soft and fresh palate. Enjoy BSE while young, with steamed and grilled fish or on its own as an aperitif.
