Exciting new Bordeaux!!!

2019 Chateau Crabitey Graves Blanc...$31.99
70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon
Age of vines Average 30 years

Chateau Crabitey Graves Blanc displays a fine, light yellow color and a nice brilliance. Its nose is fine and complex - even lemony with its pomelo scent - with some smoky notes. In the mouth, the wine is fully developed and complex, with a nice volume as well as a light acidity for the freshness. The finish is long and distinguishes itself by nice and light woody and citrus fruit aromas.
"A fresh, tangy white with sliced lime and green-apple character. It’s medium-to full-bodied. Fruity finish. Creamy texture."
Rated 91-92/100 James Suckling
