Chateau Graville-Lacoste Graves 2009


A crisp white with lemongrass forward on the nose and pineapple, pear and citrus fruit mellowing into subtle iron minerals and easy acidity. Bright but not overly so; good fruit-mineral-acid balance that hits many notes. A flirty little thing, but far from promiscuous. Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. A very good wine. (Reviewed 1/1/11)
