Chateau Ferbos Graves Blanc 2011
Pale straw color. Finely wooded, fresh bouquet; brioche with a hint of fresh mint and citrus. Frank, full of character, with a hint of mineral and smoke.
Bottled and produced by Xavier and Caroline Perromat of Chateau de Cerons, a lovely manor house built in the early 18th century on a terrace overlooking the Garonne River. Located in the heart of the Cerons village in the Graves region, the estate is surrounded by tall stone walls and sits across from a beautiful 12th century church. It has 64 acres of vineyards on a plateau with deep gravel soil overlooking the surrounding area. Xavier and Caroline Perromat took over management of the estate in 2012 and also became tenant farmers of Chateau du Mayne, another family-owned vineyard. They have accepted the challenge of producing wines of the highest quality in one of the least-known, but oldest appellations in Bordeaux—Cerons. Chateau Ferbos Graves Blanc is a crisp, successful wine.
