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.
