Grands Terroirs - Graves BlancAOC Graves
The Graves terroir, to the south of Bordeaux, is similar to that of the Medoc (made up gravely ridges exposed to the sun), with, however, the presence of sand and clay mixed in alternately with the gravel. These round pebbles, deposited by the Garonne river over the centuries, have an important role to play in the temperature control of the grapes : throughout the night they give off the heat accumulated during the day. The Grands Terroirs are the result of a particularly strict selection procedure carried out by the Dourthe oenologists. From among hundreds of batches, only the most interesting wines are selected, those with a well-balanced structure and a personality typical of their appellation. The blend then creates a wine of character with its complex fruity notes. Well-balanced and aromatic on the palate, the wine is wonderfully fresh with a vibrant finish.
