Chateau Gravas, Sauternes 2008 The nose shows a nice sense of tropical fruit, honey and minerality.
In the mouth you’ll find a light-bodied Sauternes, yet one that hits the profile, albeit without the concentration of the big guns – yet the price is affordable.
The grapes are 90% Semillon and 10% Sauvignon Blanc from 60 year old vines. The harvest is conducted in successive tries to capture the fruit as desired. The wine is aged in French and American oak.
