Graves is the oldest of all Bordeaux communes. Romans grew grapes in the stone and gravel deposits from the last Ice Age. 70% Semillon, 30% Sauvignon, a truly sophisticated white Graves that offers beautiful precision and a long, dry finish.
Graves, in Bordeaux, is reputedly the oldest vine growing region in the country and benefits not only from coarse gravel typical of the area, which stores heat from the sun in the day to keep the vines warmer at night. But also from large pine forests that protect the vineyards and the river Garonne to the east, which acts as a thermal regulator.
Smooth and silky in the mouth with soft tannins and long finish. Délicieux!
