GRAVES Blanc (Dry white)

Print the sheet

Ownership & history:

Château Beauregard Ducasse is situated in the south of the Graves AOP. Reaching heights of up to 112m, it is one of the highest vineyards in the appellation. The land has been owned by the same family since 1850, but it was a farm until the current owner-winemaker Jacques Perromat took over and decided to convert it into a vineyard.

Harvest, vinification & ageing:

This cuvée is named 'Albertine Peyri' in honour of one of Jacques Perromat's ancestors, and it is the estate's top wine. Hand-picked grapes from the oldest vines are used, and (alcoholic) fermentation takes place in 100% new oak, using a variety of different cooperages, mostly French but with a couple of barrels from California (Mendocino), all medium toast. The wine is left on lees for a month.
