Bordeaux White Blend, Chateau du Graves
75 % Sémillon/25 % Sauvignon Blanc
2017, a year that blew hot and cold… Everything started out well. Bud break was even and took place three weeks earlier than usual –harbinger of a good vintage in Bordeaux. However, two nights with frost did damage throughout the region, and their estate was not spared. Fortunately, the plots located closest to the château, and thus not far from the Garonne, were hardly affected. The harvest began on the 8th of September after a very dry, sunny, and hot month of August. This fine weather is reflected in the quality of the wine, as is the expertise of our winemaking team. The white wines are delicious, with a great deal of freshness and minerality. Due to challenging weather conditions, the 2017 vintage was low in volume. However, the care taken in the vineyard and cellar were rewarded by promising wines.
