- Ch Graville Lacoste Graves 2011 Product #26339 (In Stock)
A delicious white Bordeaux in an unusual style. Ch Graville-Lacoste's Graves Blanc contains 75-80% Semillon most years, with Sauvignon Blanc and a touch of Muscadelle making up the balance. The aromas are delicate, but inviting - pear skin, fresh hay, and that candle wax/lanolin aroma typical of Semillon. On the palate it's softer and rounder than most white Bordeaux we taste, and it somehow manages to create this roundness without a lot of excess weight. While it's a young wine, it somehow feels a bit more mature and resolved than you'd expect. This would make an absolutely delightful aperitif, and would also be fantastic with mild cheeses or gently spiced Indian food.
