Winemaker Notes

Chantegrive Blanc is made up of 50% Semillon and 50% Sauvignon Blanc. It is a wine that we shape on freshness, mineralization and fresh fruit. A great pure white that exudes citrus and jasmine notes. Aged on fine lees in stainless steel vats for 6 months, it is balanced and greedy, tangy to make the best companion for oysters and seafood, fish, goat cheese, etc.

James Suckling
This white shows pretty density and freshness for the vintage. Full-boded and layered.
Barrel Sample: 91-92

Wine Enthusiast
This ripe wine shows yellow fruits as well as layers of citrus. The rich texture gives weight and brings out a buttery element. This wine will age well and should not be drunk before 2021.

The 2018 Château De Chantegrive Blanc is terrific, with lots of pineapple and honeyed grapefruit aromatics to go with a medium-bodied, juicy, crisp, and both textured and refreshing style on the palate. It's going to shine on the dinner table and is an outstanding Bordeaux Blanc that will evolve for 7-8 years in cold cellars.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Chantegrive 2018 Blanc is still a little yeasty/cloudy at this nascent stage, offering up subtle scents of lemon juice, fresh lime and orange peel with hints of white pepper and coriander seed. Medium-bodied, the palate is crisp and racy with great density of bright fruit and a pure apple-laced finish.
Barrel Sample: 88-90

Famous for both its red and white wines, Graves is a large region, extending 30 miles southeast of the city of Bordeaux, along the left bank of the Garonne River. Red wine producing vineyards cover well over three times as much area as the whites. In the late 1980s, the French created the separate appellation of Pessac-Léognan within the northern confines of Graves. It includes all of its most famous properties, and the southern suburbs of the city Bordeaux itself. In French "graves" is a term used to indicate gravelly soils.

Sometimes light and crisp, other times rich and creamy, Bordeaux White Blends typically consist of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Often, a small amount of Muscadelle or Sauvignon Gris is included for added intrigue. Popularized in Bordeaux, the blend is often mimicked throughout the New World. Somm Secret—Sauternes and Barsac are usually reserved for dessert, but they can be served before, during or after a meal. Try these sweet wines as an aperitif with jamón ibérico, oysters with a spicy mignonette or during dinner alongside hearty Alsatian sausage.
