Here we are lovely friends, moving forward with our second wine from Barrique’s Wall of 100. La Graviere Entre-Deux-Mers is a wine produced by Chateau La Graviere out of the Bordeaux region. It is 55% Semillon, 35% Sauvignon, and 10% Muscabelle. It’s vintage is 2015 and it rings in at 13%. This wine was $9.99 and certainly worth its price. Steven and I both are quite fond of Bordeaux wines, and this one did not disappoint. We tasted this wine on May 3rd, 2017 in the comfort of our apartment, and this time did not pair it with any food (sometimes simply enjoying the wine itself is enough).
Steven and I agreed on all aspects of this wine, so let’s jump right in.
The color depth was pale, the color hue was yellow, and the clarity was clear. The aroma intensity was moderate and the development had some age. The aromas we smelled were tree fruits including pear, apple, and peach.
This wine was medium sweet and its body was light. It was quite crisp as far as acidity goes, and there were no tannins present. Its balance was fair and its flavor intensity was moderate. We agreed its flavors when tasted included vanilla, clove, pear, and apple. The finish was medium and lasted 4-5 seconds. We both agreed 2015 La Graviere Entre-Deux-Mers was “Good”, and would certainly recommend it as an affordable wine to both drink as well as to share/gift. The style was in-between, as it was neither traditional nor modern, and we gave it 3/5 stars.
We hope you are enjoying our journey through Barriques’ Wall of 100 (we certainly are!), and we definitely hope you try some of them as well (who doesn’t like a relaxing glass of vino?!)! Here’s to a great week friends!
