CHÂTEAU CALVIMONT BLANC, GRAVES 2016 (FRANCE)

CHÂTEAU CALVIMONT BLANC, GRAVES 2016 (FRANCE)

Fine-tuned and accomplished from an historic producer.

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.

Description

Graves is an important sub-region of the Bordeaux wine region. Graves is situated on the left bank … Graves AOC is also the name of one Appellation d’origine contrôlée (AOC) which covers most, but not all of the Graves sub-region. The name is derived from ‘gravel’ and the best soils are gravel-rich, mixed with sand and occasionally clay. This is the region which first established Bordeaux’s reputation.

Xavier and Caroline Perromat took over Château Calvimont in 2012, along with Château de Cérons. The couple inherited Xavier’s parents’ estate and began to put their own stamp on the vines and wines.
