Graves is a wine district in Bordeaux, characterized by the gravel soils after which it is named. The gravelly soils are the result of many millennia of geological activity by glaciers and rivers that have transported vast quantities of gravel and mineral-rich silts down from their mountain sources. In the district of Graves, the wines convey this unique character of the soil. The Château Pontet Reynaud 2016 Graves is a blend of 50% Sémillon, 40% Sauvignon Blanc, and 10% Muscadelle from 30 year old vines. Its powerful nose is characterized by notes of grapefruit, acacia flowers and broom while the palate is rich and smooth yet deliciously fresh with a long finish.
