AGED IN THE SEA
GRAVES of BORDEAUX - Vintage : 2017 (12% vol.) Grape variety : Sauvignon / Semillon
Winemaker Franck LABEYRIE - Château LUGEY
Truly surprising wine thanks to its maturing for several months in the Arcachon basin, in the sea!
Surprising in two ways, by its iodized side when tasted, but above all also by the appearance of the bottle!
For several vintages, Franck Labeyrie, a Bordeaux winegrower, has been immersing a few hundred bottles of his Graves blancs at a depth of about ten metres in the oyster crates of one of his oyster farmers' friends.
This new concept of maturing in an underwater environment gives this wine, unique in the world, a better aromatic conservation, a suppleness in the mouth and a very pleasant iodine touch with seafood.
