Chateau Moutin 2012
The Château Moutin is situated in the village of Portets, southern part of the Graves appellation. This white wine combines the fruitiness of the Sauvignon Blanc and the roundness of the Graves wines.

A skin contact maceration is done for 12-18 hours to extract the maximum aromas from the skins. The alcoholic fermentation starts naturally after one to two days. We try to continue with a slow fermentation to capture the most interesting aromatic characteristics from the grapes. When the alcoholic fermentation has started, the juice is racked into one-year old French oak barrels where the alcoholic fermentation is completed.
The wine is matured six to eight months on the lees into french oak barrels. Then bottling under strict regulations (sterilised bottles, high filtration).
Yellow greenish color. Intense nose on white fruits and flowers : acacia, grapefruit and citrus notes. Good attack on the palate with grapedfruit notes and citrus. The wine is intense and round with a perfect balance of the wood. Round finish and balanced palate. An elegant white Graves coming from a confidential terroir.
(Review from: Vivino) Big passion fruit, nose is clean, no sign of oak or sediment... Balance with chalky notes, fruit flavour is powerful, yet short lived... Potential as a dry dessert wine..
