Does anyone have any recommendations for white burgundys/Graves?

Posted by jpartridge99, Oct 9, 2010.

When I lived in Europe my favorite French white was Graves.  I am now living in Mexico and our local shops do carry some french wines, but I need to have some recommendations to see if I can get some special ordered.   Any suggestions.

Budget? That's the only problem with Pessac Leognan et al. these days. While there's plenty of budget-friendly Entre-Deux-Mers, the better Graves are a bit pricey. I suppose we should thank all those years of attention by the UK wine writers....

Anyway, if you can provide some budgetary parameters, we'll see what we can do.

I would like to stay below US$25.  Have thought of moving back to Europe, but love the bewach at my front door down here in Mexico.  Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hi Jpartridge - Kermit Lynch offers a very nice graves white, has a distinct flavor, sold here in Orange Co. for USD 14, you can order it from wine-exchange or probably another retailer.  It needs to breathe a while to fully open up.


Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend

Jpartridge - I looked through my records and found a burgundy that impressed me, also from Lynch, available just under $20 and rec'd a 90 from Allen Meadows

Domaine Robert-Denogent Mâcon-Fuissé Les Tâches 2007  $19.99

The former above post (Graves) white featured mineral, nectarine, lemongrass in roughly equal proportions, and the latter, above featured lemon, pineapple guava, and mineral with a nice "acid-razor" down the center of the tongue, quite interesting to me.

= = = =

The one below is good too - kumquat, lemon, nectarine, melon, mineral, bitter herb, with an acid kick at the end - at USD 10

Cave de Lugny Mâcon-Villages 2008  $9.99

also could try these, I thought they were quality as well

Domaine Maurice Lecestre Chablis 2008  (could not locate price)

Savary Chablis Selection Vielles Vignes 2008  $19.99
