Château Calvimont, Graves Blanc, 2016
Graves AOC, Bordeaux, France
75% Semillon, 25% Sauvignon Blanc. A charming white Bordeaux from a unique Left Bank terroir. Delicate, aromatic nose, this wine is herbaceous with ripe weighty fruit on the palate. The wine features hints of lemon, grapefruit, peach and white flowers. It has a good linear structure with a gentle complexity and freshness on the finish. A wine to lay down – the high proportion of Semillon will benefit from further bottle ageing. This wine is delicious, with a great deal of freshness and minerality – typical of this Bordeaux area.
Food recommendations: all types of fish, oysters, sushi, veal, chicken or pork.
