Rothschild - Mouton Cadet Reserve Graves Blanc 2009French White Wine
Graves is the only Bordeaux region famous for both red and white wines. This white blend is predominantly made from Semillon with about 15% sauvignon to add fresh acidity and 5% Muscadelle for its floral quality. The gravelly terrain of this district adds minerality to compliment the full citrus zestiness. Matured in oak for 4 months.
Brilliant pale yellow in colour. The nose opens on elegant notes of white blossom and citrus fruit, especially yellow and pink grapefruit, with a mineral touch of flint. The attack is round and fruity, the mid-palate rich and substantial, extending into a remarkably mineral finish, typical of the Graves appellation.
