Tasting Notes

Château Graville-Lacoste delivers a crisp and dry, medium-bodied Graves full of rich, fruity, herbal character. The classic white Bordeaux blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, it has a fresh, lingering finish. Remarkable personality for the price.

Staff Pick Notes

A wonderful, value-driven white Bordeaux that delivers every time. Hervé Dubourdieu is the mastermind behind Château Graville-Lacoste. His vineyards are concentrated in Graves, where this dry wine is made, and Sauternes (a.k.a. dessert-wine heaven). He is a champion of the ageworthy Sémillon grape. It generally plays a supporting role to more fruit-forward Sauvignon Blanc in affordable white Bordeaux, but in this case it's the dominant grape. It's not overtly showy, yet very fresh and approachable with notes of dried citrus, beeswax, and flowers on the palate. Lively and light bodied, this is the quintessential wine for dining al fresco. An absolute treat that offers a lot for its price.
