Château Rahoul Blanc Graves, 2017

ABV: 12.5%
Region: Bordeaux
Country: France
Producer: Dourthe Vineyards

Château Rahoul is one of only a handful of Graves wines to belong to the highly selective Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux. On the palate, this Graves white wine offers complex flavours of white peaches, limeflower, and citrus, freshness, and depth. This is an age-worthy wine, and it will be all the more elegant if enhanced by several years of ageing.

Description

Château Rahoul (member of the distinguished Union des Grands Crus) has always been renowned for its white wine, predominantly from Semillon. Château Rahoul white ranks among the best in the appellation. With its fine balance between aromatic complexity, freshness and amplitude in the mouth, it elegantly withstands several years of ageing.

Alain Thiénot acquired Château Rahoul in 1986 to maintain its position as one of the most excellent Cru wines in Graves

Grape

59% Semillon – 41% Sauvignon Blanc

Vineyard & Vinification Note

HVE3 and Terra Vitis certified (High environmental value certificates)

Soil: Gravely sand and clay gravel for the Sémillon and clay on limestone for the Sauvignon. Harvest: Manual in crates in the morning, according to the type of grape and soil. Vinification: Alcoholic fermentation in barrels (15% new). Ageing: In oak barrels on fine lees, with regular lees stirring

Tasting Note

The Sauvignon Blanc character takes a leading role in this vintage, with the bouquet offering citrus fruit character enriched by aromas of grapefruit, white-fleshed fruits, and a delicate floral note of acacia—stunning freshness and balance on the palate. Clean on the attack and rapidly gaining in generosity, echoing the prominent aromas on the bouquet, while the structure gains lovely, rich, fleshy character. Freshness and well-balanced aromas pre-empt the long, lingering finish—superbly elegant Rahoul. Frédéric Bonnaffous, Dourthe Estates Director

James Suckling Tasting Note

Impressively poised nose with lightly reductive lemons and white peaches, as well as freshly cut herbs. The palate has impressive concentration and quite intense notes of fresh, grassy lemons and stone. Great poise here. A blend of 59% semillon and 41% sauvignon blanc. Drink now. 92 Points, James Suckling, January 2019

Jeb Dunnuck

Exotic flowers, lime, and citrus characterize the 2017 Château Rahoul Blanc, a medium-bodied, juicy, yet balanced white from the Graves region. 89/91 Points, April 2018

Food Pairing

Château Rahoul Blanc matches perfectly poultry, fish, crustaceans and cheese.
