The wine shows a lovely pale golden color with deep golden highlights. Round and well-balanced offering complex aromas of candied fruits backed up by a hint of exotic fruit (mango, guava) and white flowers. On the palate, it is ample and fleshy, leading into a silky and long finish.

"The 2015 Château Gravas is an outstanding Sauternes based on 95% Semillon and 5% Sauvignon Blanc brought up in barrel. Its lively gold color is followed by textbook notes of sautéed apple and baking spice aromas and flavors. It’s medium-bodied, nicely textured, has plenty of fruit, and is incredibly well-made. Drink it over the coming 7-8 years or so."
