A red and white wine from Graves with the stylish WINECHILL in a gift box.
Think of Bordeaux and you think of full bodied red wines. Second thoughts often lead to the sweet whites. But lesser known is the fact that in the region you can find delicious dry white wines. One of the most classic appellations of the region is Graves, which borders the city of Bordeaux. On the south side of Graves you can find Sauternes, world renowned for the sweet desert wines. The Graves is known for their dry white and red wines.
And specifically in this area we have found a pearl. The Lamothe family, known for producing top notch Sauternes, owns a few vineyards with white grape varieties (Sémillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc) and with vines over fifty years old. This wine is raised in vats and then in wooden barrels for about 6 months. The result: a beautiful dry wine with flavours of citrus and exotic fruits, and a lovely fresh minerality because of the clay soil. The after taste is long – so long that you feel you still have the wine in your mouth long after you have swallowed it
Their red wine, a blend with primarily Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, is made from young vines. Thanks to a rigorous selection during the manual harvest and an advanced winemaking, they created a wine of great elegance, ruby colour and a nice bouquet with notes of confit fruits. In the mouth, you will find a nice balance between red fruits and tannins. A very nice and easy to drink wine, to drink with red meats or with soft cheeses.
