Intro to Chateau Calvimont Graves Blanc –
Chateau Calvimont Blanc from the Graves is a delicate aromatic wine with a full fresh fruity flavour.
Full tasting note and wine making –
Chateau Calvimont Blanc from the Graves region has a delicate, aromatic nose, and it is full of herbaceous ripe weighty fruit on the palate that is reminiscent of ripe apples and pears. It has a good clean structure with a gentle complexity and freshness on the finish. This wine can be kept a while as the use of a high proportion of Sémillon ensures that it will benefit from a little bottle ageing.
The grapes were hand harvested in late September, then whole bunch pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks with four to six weeks of lees stirring. The wine was aged fora few weeks in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and is completely unoaked.
The producer –
Xavier and Caroline Perromat took over Château Calvimont in 2012, along with Château de Cérons. The couple inherited Xavier’s parents’ estate and began to put their own stamp on the vines and the wines.
Château Calvimont comes from specific plots which have always belonged to the Cérons estate; the Marquis de Calvimont was the owner in the late 18th century. Viticulture is sustainable and winemaking in the gravity fed cellar is precise, producing Graves wines with a fine minerality and balance. The vineyards are on a plateau of gravel over limestone overlooking the river Garonne, which is perfect terroir for Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines in particular.
