The 2016 Château Gravas Sauternes shows a lovely pale golden color with deep golden highlights. Round and well-balanced offering complex aromas of candied fruits backed up by a hint of exotic fruit (mango, guava) and white flowers. On the palate, it is ample and fleshy, leading into a silky and long finish.
Château Gravas is a family owned and operated winery, managed by husband and wife Michel and Florence Bernard. Founded in 1850, the estate is superbly located in Barsac, between Château Coutet, Château Climens, and Château Doisy-Daëne. Six generations of Claverie and Bernard families have succeeded each other on the Gravas estate.
