Tasting Notes

L'Avocat is in the small commune of Cerons, which is located just north of Barsac and Sauternes in the southern Graves appellation. The vineyards were purchased by Nicola and Sean Allison in 2002; the fruit was previously sold to Mouton Rothschild. At 300 feet above the Garrone River, the vineyards have stunning views of the lovely Côtes de Bordeaux. The vineyard's elevation is a key factor in its great drainage, and the soil is loaded with different color gravel that imparts textbook minerality to both their whites and reds.

    The white Avocat for me is a classic white Bordeaux. It processes a nice balanced richness, with a lanolin, honeyed nose, along with a broad palate. The addition of Sauvignon Gris definitely makes its beautiful presence known. The full breakdown of the cepages is 50% Semillon, 40% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Sauvignon Gris
