Château du Seuil, Graves Blanc

Château du Seuil, Graves Blanc

A blend of 60% Sémillon and 40% Sauvignon Blanc with part of the Sémillon portion fermented in new French oak barriques; lees-stirring is employed before being reincorporated into the blend. A wine with great depth and ageing potential in the classic mould of a top Graves yet exhibiting a modern feel; bouquet of honey and citrus fruits, floral aromas from the vibrant Sauvignon Blanc, with a classic Graves minerality on the palate. 'Elegant, citrus dominated style with perfect weight. A subtle smokiness is the only clue that this wine actually saw quite a bit of oak, but it’s beautifully done.' 90/100, Tim Atkin writing in Decanter 2014.
