Wine maker notes
70% Semillon and 30% Colombard from 30 year old vines aged in French oak barrels for 12 months with micro-oxygenation process. A four generations family estate lead by Philippe and Valerie Bassereau, the vineyards spread over 120 acres. “GAINS FINS” is a well structured and complex wine with a pronounced character; a warm and expressive wine which can be easily domesticated in its youth.

Producer
Since 1990, Philippe and Valerie BASSEREAU have managed Chateau de la Grave mixing tradition and modernity. The property is an estate of 50 hectares with 45 hectares of vines planted all around the chateau built in the XVI century and renovated in the Louis XIII style in the XVIII century just as we know it today. The vineyard of the Chateau de la Grave is one of the biggest of its appellation (average size: 16 Ha) and is located on the highest land of the COTES DE BOURG area. It’s the underground made up of limestone which gives the wines a lot of character, a nice acidity, full and elegant tannins in the red ones and a nice freshness in the white and pink wine, with always pepper and spicy notes at the nose and the palate. The soil brings complexity to the wines: - On table lands: gravely soil, with mostly red gravels. - On slopes: gravels, clay and sandy. The vineyard enjoys an early “terroir” which guarantees a good ripeness of the grapes. Being sensitive to the quality and the authenticity of the wines, Chateau de la Grave adheres to very strict rules which respect the grapes, soil and environment. Some essential rules of production: - Traditional work of the soil: Plowing and growing of grass - Organic fertilizers only: no chemical fertilizers, no chemical insecticides - Purification station for the treatment of all viticulture waste products - Fallow land: 3 years minimum between two plantings to recover the soil with cereals growing.
