Graves Blanc Cuvée Anaïs 2015

Cuvée Anaïs is vinified and aged for 10 months in oak barrels (1/3 new, 1/3 1st passage, 1/3 2nd passage). Grapes are coming from a severe selection of the estates’ best plots (3 hectares producing roughly 7.000 bts yearly), usually blending all the three famed white Bordeaux varieties with following break-down: 45% each of Sauvignon and Sémillon and 10% Muscadelle. Proportions can change according to peculiar vintage characteristics. This is a pleasing wine with a fine vanilla hint intermingled with citrusy notes. The attack is beautifully rich, somehow exotic while it finishes still supple and fresh with a long persistent creamy note. Great pairing with grilled pork dressed with caramelized onions.
