Once again, our wines have been selected in the Guide Hachette des Vins !
Châteaux Fage and La Fleur des Graves both received a star and we are proud to share with you their tasting notes.
A vast domain with 50 ha of vines and 60 ha of forest and meadow, directed by a XVIIIth century Chateau built according to Victor Louis’ plan and owned by the Glotin family since 1930. Different labels here, under the appellations Graves de Vayres and Entre-deux-Mers : Goudichaud, Haut Bessac, Fage and La Fleur des Graves.
Château Fage 2015 * : This dry white born from Sémillon (60%) and Sauvignon si beautiful with its bright goldish yellow colour. The olfaction is complex gathered around the sauvignon varietal aromas (box tree, broom), the aeration offers a wide fruity emergence (vine peach, mirabelle plum) like “a morning of spicy hints”. A Suave and full-bodied attack annouce a fleshy mouth enhanced by mineral notes in the end.
Château La Fleur des Graves 2015 * : A “sexy” wine by excellence, thanks to its bright almond green colour. On the nose we find bow tree, then citrus, exotic fruits and vanilla aromas. In the mouth, the woody aromas are still a little dominant, we have some freshness brought by a stimulant minerality and lime and dried apricot flovors.
Château Goudichaud Red 2014 and White 2015 are also quoted in this 2017 edition of the Guide Hachette des Vins.
