Chateau de Chantegrive "Caroline" 2016

Bordeaux - Graves - White Chateau de Chantegrive Chateau de Chantegrive 2016 1077/16
  • J. Robinson : 15

A complex, fresh and fruity white wine from Graves

This vineyard covers 15 hectares and is located in the Graves appellation, the cuvee "Caroline" from Chateau de Chantegrive is produced from vines that are planted on sandy soil mixed with gravel and pebbles. The vines are, on average, 30 years old and facing South. The wine is aged in French oak barrels (50% are new) on fine lees for 9 months with regular battonage (lees stirring). The 2016 vintage is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc (50%) and Semillon (50%).

The weather for the 2016 vintage began much like that of 2015. Winter and spring experienced heavy rainfall (January-June), before the extremely dry and hot summer. Harvest took place over three weeks, perfectly optimizing the grapes' maturity.

"Caroline" 2016 from Chateau de Chantegrive reveals complex aromas. The wine is clearly alivecrisp, and incredibly fruity.
