L’Absolu de Gravas 2014 - Château de Gravas, Graves

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

Graves is known as one of the best terroirs for white in Bordeaux. As soon as you dip your lips, you can feel all the minerality expected but also all the freshness brought by Sauvignon's citrus aromas. The texture is a bit silky : this wine is flattering on the palate. It will perfectly pair with shellfish ! 

 

Terroir

Château Gravas, is located just next to the prestigious village of Barsac, part of an exceptional terroir. Its cracked limestone soil allows a deep penetration of the roots, feeding the vine all the elements necessary for its good development. And a well-fed vineyard is a vine that gives good grapes !

lecepage Grape variety

Semillon is the king variety of Sauternes and Barsac for the production of sweet wines. It is also found in the production of dry white wines blended with its traditional partner : Sauvignon. While Semillon gives golden and fleshy wines, Sauvignon gives birth to deeply fresh and mineral wines, hence balancing Semillon’s generosity.

lemillesime Vintage

The vintage 2014 seems to be the vintage of renewal in Bordeaux. Indeed, after mixed results of 2011, 2012 and 2013 vintages, 2014 gave their smile back to our Bordeaux winegrowers. However, if some winegrowers benefited from the rainy summer and the exceptional month of September to harvest later to produce fine wines, some didn’t and the vintage is quite heterogeneous ! 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

The building was built in 1850 and now the 6th generation is in charge. From its past, the castle has preserved a magnificent stone press from the 1900s. If it is no longer used for production, it symbolizes for the winegrowers of the domain the mark of their savoir faire.
