Graves is renowned for its classic whites that include the famous wines of Domaine de Chevalier and Château Haut Brion among others. These are among Bordeaux’s finest dry whites and rarely do you see them at an affordable price. You can imagine our delight when we discovered Château des Perligues.
Château Des Perligues is located in the village of Illats, in the heart of the Graves appellation
It’s a classic Bordeaux white blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon with racy citrus fruits and floral freshness
The vineyards are planted on the famous gravel soils this region is named after. As a result, there’s a beautiful mineral delicacy to this aromatic white
Tasting note:A delicate perfume of white flowers and racy citrus fruits. On the palate, hints of lemon and grapefruit come to the fore with gentle floral and mineral notes developing on the finish. This is a wine to linger over as every sip reveals just a little more. Enjoy with prawns stir-fried in lemongrass and ginger.
