£ 10.00 tax incl.

White wines from Château Cabannieux have been famous for quite some time - they had been chosen in 1939 to represent Graves white wines at the Universal Exhibition in New York! Benefiting from a great sun exposure, the vineyard produces this typical white Graves, made of Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. With its floral nose, fruity aromas and a toasted finish provided by the oak ageing, it will make happy any amateur of aromatic whites from Graves - which is, to be honest, the only area with good white wines in Bordeaux!
