Chateau Graville-Lacoste Graves Blanc, 2002

Try Graville Lacoste in its youth, and you'll find a lovely white Graves with impressive complexity and depth. Keep it a few years, and you'll find even more to like.

Good deep color but not overly mature./ Nicely understated scents of Sauvignon Blanc--mint, melon, quince and flowers. Now come the rich, figgy aromas of Semillon./ Silky smooth, light to medium bodied and very classy. There is nothing overstated, but the figgy, minty floral flavors just keep coming at you. A perfect match for whitefish Grenoble.

At $15 to $18 a bottle, Graville Lacoste is, in my opinion, one of the very best white wine values.
