N°1 de Dourthe Graves BlancAOC Graves
For N°1 Graves White, a rigorous selection of parcels takes place in the vineyard to identify the best possible terroir for Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. From tending the vine all the way through to the harvest, the growers work in close collaboration with the Dourthe winemakers. Maceration on the skins and low temperature fermentation combine to release all the best aromas and provide the wine with structure and length. The best batches mature on fine lees for 6 months, perfecting the balance of the wine and optimising the finesse and richness.
