The appellation of Graves is home to some of the best dry white wines in all of Bordeaux, France. Graves is situated on the left bank of the Garonne river, in the upstream part of the Bordeaux region, and was named for its intensely gravelly soil (the result of glaciers from the Ice Age).

The Mayne du Cros 2011 is straw yellow in color with aromas of citrus, white flowers, and toasted bread. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with rich citrus flavors and a long, lingering finish. The aging in oak barrels provides the smooth, rounded flavors and notes of toasted oak on the finish. The Mayne du Cros is part of the larger Château du Cros family of wines.
