Winemaker Notes

Golden color with green hues. An elegant and intense nose of vanilla, fresh butter, citrus, apricot and lime. The palate has a nice fruity start with balanced oak and a long finish on exotic fruits and wild mint. Perfect with sea-food, Scallops, prawns, white meat, oven-baked fish, or with cream sauce, sweetbreads, light cheese and foie gras.

James Suckling

Fragrant, cedary oak and notes of lemons and grapefruit make for a complex and fresh young Graves. The palate has a very energetic and focused feel with lemons and peaches, as well as savory, biscuity complexity. A blend of 50% semillon, 45% sauvignon blanc and 5% sauvignon gris.

Decanter
This estate was badly affected by frost - a real loss for the appellation, as this is one of the leading lights. But they have managed to produce a small quantity of this excellent white. Rich, round and succulent, it has a fleshy texture with white pears and white peaches. It's subtle but builds in power through the palate, and is going to give a lot of pleasure over the next five to 10 years. There's an excellent mouthwatering quality on the finish. Fermented and aged in 50% new oak with lees stirring for nine months.

Wine Enthusiast
Rich and ripe, this wine has a dense texture and fine spice notes from the oak aging. It is a generous wine, packed with green fruits, citrus and warm apricot flavors. It will age well and be ready to drink from 2021.

The 2017 Château de Chantegrive Caroline is another beautiful white from this vintage. Offering plenty of pineapple and citrus fruits, medium-bodied richness, and nicely integrated acidity, it has plenty of oomph and texture while still showing the fresher, more vibrant side to the vintage.
Barrel Sample: 89-91

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Cuvee Caroline opens with ripe pears and Golden Delicious apples with touches of chalk dust and lemongrass. Medium-bodied with a racy backbone and fantastic intensity, it has a long finish.

Bordeaux, France

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.

View all products

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.
