CHATEAU DE CHANTEGRIVE "Caroline" Blanc 2015

(Graves, Bordeaux, France) $19

White Bordeaux continues—inexplicably–to fly under the radar. But the wines can be sensational and some (like Chantegrive) are steals. This wine rides on a wave of richness yet isn’t heavy, fat, or ponderous. The classic candlewax and botanical aromas and flavors of white Bordeaux are all there (a must-try if you haven’t experienced them). Plus a long, lovely finish. This vintage is 50% semillon and 50% sauvignon blanc, and comes from precious 60-year old vines. And don’t forget to see this week’s WineSpeed blog.
