The Château Chanteloiseau Cuvée Jean Jules Graves possesses a delicate straw color, deep aromas of wild grasses, herbs and orchard fruits – peaches and apples – to delight the nose. In the mouth, the wine comes across as rich and textured from a preponderance of Semillon, yet balanced with racy acidity thanks to a healthy dose of Sauvignon Blanc.
Chateau Chanteloiseau is located in in the village of Langon, within the graves appellation. This charming property has been owned for several generations owned by the Latrille-Bonnin family, and totals 48 hectares, producing both whites and red wine. Like many southern Graves estates, white wine remains the primary draw at Chateau Chanteloiseau, even though the property also fashions a fine red Graves.
Pairs well with pork, vegetarian dishes, poultry, appetizers and snacks, and lean fish.
