2016 Chateau Graville-Lacoste Blanc - Graves, Bordeaux, France
With an unusually high percentage of Semillon in the blend (60% with a balance of 35% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Muscadelle), Graville-Lacoste is a somewhat atypical Graves. The Semillon gives it more body, viscosity and honeysuckle flavors, yet it still retains the stony soil characteristics and minerality that the appellation is known for. The Sauvignon Blanc brings bracing acidity and grapefruit pith to the party. Speaking of which, this is a great party white that also pairs well with anything from fish to poultry to Indian curries!
