The 2016 Cuvee Caroline reveals honeyed peaches, spiced pears and fresh lemon slices with a waft of fresh ginger. Medium-bodied, the palate is laden with stone fruit and spicy layers plus a racy backbone and great length.
A new generation has now arrived and with its energy and committed involvement within the winegrowing world, has injected renewed impetus into the estate.
Graves is a large region, extending 30 miles southeast of the city of Bordeaux, along the left bank of the Garonne River. It is the only Bordeaux appellation famous for both its red and white wines, though red 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.
