Domaine du Salut Graves Blanc 2020 is a Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blend that expresses classic Graves style. It is stoney and lean, with aromas of cut grass and green pepper. Enjoy notes of lemon rind on the crisp finish. Experience a complex and textured mouthfeel in a perfect wine for seafood starters. Also a superb aperitif!

Critic Review

Decanter Magazine: 90Pts (2019 vintage)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2026

"Subtly fragranced nose. Bright lemon, lime, pineapple and peach are immediately apparent alongside soft wild honeyed notes and some floral touches. This is delicate and refined, well presented with drive from start to finish. I like the texture and brightness of the flavours. A nice easy drinking wine to enjoy straight away. Will be great with creamy pasta dishes or white meats - something quite savoury to offset the enjoyable and very softly sweet acidity. could be 91?"

About the Producer

A 16 hectare domaine owned by a husband and wife team in the small town of Cérons in Graves. They have strong green credentials; Terra Vitis certified and in organic conversion since 2020.

We are Vigneron Indépendant, which is a French label for independent winegrowers making their wines fully in-house, from the grapes to the bottle. Our project to become winemakers grew surely during the past few years. We have always been very close to the wine industry, through the previous job of Aurélia, in charge of defending the interest of the winemakers as the head of a lobbying organization and through our family as well, which counts several winemakers.

Pursuing the work engaged in the vineyard for many generations, we bring our motivation and personalities to develop contemporary wines from sustainable vine growing techniques.
