Books, Bottles, & Banter
A blog about the books I read, the wine I drink, and the thoughts I think.

Chateau Sylvain Raymond Graves 2011
I don’t have a lot of exposure to white Bordeaux, but this was an excellent venture. It was a wine club offering.
Made from a blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, it had more to it than the last Bordeaux Blanc I tasted.
It was a lovely corn-silk color. The nose was bursting with floral and pineapple scents.
On the palate, it had a round, buttery presence, with a nice balance between minerals and fruit.
Very drinkable, and perfect for summer.
