Wine Tasting Note: Chateau Brown Graves, 2005, Pessac-Leognan, Bordeaux, France.
Just waiting on retail price and stockist info...
Is that an aniseed edge to the aroma? There is the 'normal' green and nettle aromas found in all decent Sauvignons but with more than a dash of welcome complexity too. The palate is lovely - at once crisp and juicy but with a creamy edge. Flavours of passion fruit, green grass and straw mingle delightfully with a nice 'poise' to the palate and a lingering length. Alcohol 13%.
As with a majority of Sauvingon Blanc based wines this is superb with a little goats cheese. We though went for a decent slab of salmon and a hollandaise sauce which made for a scrumptious pairing. Other seafood is going to be excellent as well, as will lemon-flavoured dishes.
