I bought this bottle of wine for ten pounds from a wine merchant in Sussex.It is from Sauternes, an appellation for sweet white wines about 30 miles south of Bordeaux on the left or west bank of the river Garonne.Chateau Gravas [www.chateau-gravas.fr ] was bought by the Bernard family in 1850 and is currently run by Michel and Florence Bernard They are heavily involved in tourism as well as wine making.It is a small 8 hectare estate usually producing only 2000 cases a year but it is close to the classed growth chateau of Coutet,Climens and Doisy Daene.The wine consists of 95% semillon and 5% sauvignon blanc and the grapes are hand-harvested very late in order to allow the development of a fungus called Botrytis which contributes to the sweet taste.The wine is matured in oak barrels.I drank my bottle last night with a plate of bread and blue cheese and I thought it superb.It is extremely sweet like honey or syrup with plenty of fruit [think apricots or peach] but there is also a very strong more acidic citrus taste.There are a lot of flavours in the mouth at once with this wine
