This Bordeaux Blanc from Chateau La Gravelle is made with a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillion, and Muscadelle grapes. It has a pale golden color with green hues, and an ABV of about 12%. Bright and crisp, it has a very floral bouquet, with aromas of white flower, citrus, and notes of melon and yellow apple. Well-balanced on the palate, it has flavors of peach and citrus, and a fresh almond finish.
Pair the Chateau La Gravelle Bordeaux Blanc with fish like halibut, salmon, or tuna. It’s great with sushi and salads, as well as pesto-based pastas. Try it also with mushroom risotto and roast vegetables.
Located in the town of Gorges, in the Sevre et Maine appellation, Chateau La Gravelle used to be a 300-hectare property. It was split during the French Revolution, and the Chateau boasts 15 of those hectares, managed by mother-daughter duo, Véronique and Aurore Günther-Chéreau. The buildings on the estate date back to the time of Louis XIII, including the classic windmill, featured on the bottle label, and typical of the Nantes region. In 2010, Chateau La Gravelle converted to organic farming, and have used this method since.
