Graves - the Best dry white Bordeaux

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.

Fresh fruits and minerality

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 (Sémillion, 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 flavors 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.

We have just received the 2016 vintage of this wine. It is a great year with ripe fruit, pureness and low yields. Total production is 3000 bottles only! We have secured a nice allocation for you.

Klassieke klasse! Laat al dat onrijpe spetterende sauvignon blanc geweld aan je voorbij gaan en geniet in stilte maar met je zintuigen wijd open van deze prachtwijn. Fris zonder puntig te zijn, breed in zijn smaakpalet met op de achtergrond een hint van ananas. Dit verveelt niet snel, een slok doet je verlangen naar de volgende. Deze wijn is "good value for money"!
