About The Producer

Chateau de Respide

  • Chateau de Respide

    Château de Respide is one of the oldest wine-growing Château of the Graves area. Built during the 17th century, with a Louis XIII Style, it was the property of Monsieur De la Reynie, lieutenant of the King Louis XIV.
    Located in the southern part of Graves, Ch. de Respide is a historic property (the white wine in particular was a favourite of Toulouse-Lautrec who often holidayed there). The eponymous gravel soil lends a crisp, saline edge to the Sauvignon Blanc which is tempered by the roundness of the Semillon. Fermentation in oak barrels lends a pronounced spicy, vanilla laced complexity to the whole. More golden coloured than you might expect and with good “legs” too. The nose is huge: mango, lychee and white peach all vie for attention. The palate is really quite concentrated; this needs food. An intriguing juxtaposition of fresh and crisp versus weighty and complex.
