Number of wine boxes of 3 bottles to add to basket:

The opinion of the sommelier

This wine reminds of a fruit basket filled with fresh and crunchy fruits ! The nose displays various elegant flavours of pear, banana, apple and blackberry. On the palate, we may agree that the smooth start gives charm. This delicious “Graves” manages to combine the subtly flavoured treats of fruits and a gentle texture. The perfect dry white Bordeaux ! 

 

Terroir

As its name tells, the soil of the “Graves” is made of gravels, pebbles (called graves in French) and stones. These “graves” reflect solar radiations and gradually redistribute the heat on the bunches contributing to a better grape ripeness. For white wines, it explains why Graves have such a smooth texture.

lecepage Grape variety

The perfect match ! In the mouth, sauvignon brings expressive aromas marked by notes of white fruits and flowers. Semillon is not that aromatic, but it brings the structure and a buttery touch as well as a hint of sugar.

lemillesime Vintage

In Bordeaux, 2016 was a good vintage in terms of quality and volume. The summer has been excessively dry and caused considerable damages to vines (mainly the youngest ones because their roots are too short to get to water stored deep in the ground. It caused a water stress obstructing the maturation of the grapes. Luckily, the rains of September saved the harvest. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

J.Lebègue is an historic winery founded in 1828 by Jules Lebègue at Cantenac, a small village located on the left side of the Gironde, next to Margaux. The company manages to combine the “basics” with innovations. Indeed, the firm has recently distinguished itself by launching the first Bordeaux fully fermented in oak barrels as they do in Burgundy.
