Ch. Auney l’Hermitage Blanc, Graves - 2022

Item # 32322 750mL

A rare find from a small estate in the massive Bordeaux region of France. The grapes for this Graves blend are sourced from a small six hectare vineyard on gravel and clay soils. The Sémillon really comes out in a glass as well as contributing a richer texture on the palate.

Staff Pick Notes

This wine is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Muscadelle. Organic practices are used In the vineyard and the soil is rich in limestone, which provides minerality and structure. You can really taste the intensity and fragrance of Sémillon, often used in this region in a small percentage compared to Sauvignon Blanc. Muscadelle gives freshness. As you sip this wine you can taste melon and honey and a hint of candied fruit. I would pair it with white meat and fried dishes. Such an amazing drinking experience without spending a fortune!
