Neal Martin - Vinous

The 2017 Rahoul Blanc offers attractive yellow plum and linden scents on the nose. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp acidity, a fine sense of tension with a little spiciness coming through on the finish. This might be overlooked by many, but it is one of the most promising white Pessacs that I encountered.

Exotic flowers, lime, and citrus characterize the 2017 Château Rahoul Blanc, a medium-bodied, juicy, yet balanced white from the Graves region.

Roger Voss - Wine Enthusiast

Very herbal, this Sauvignon Blanc-dominated wine is taut and nervy, with a grassy character and cool gooseberry and grapefruit flavors. Drink from 2019.

Winemakers Note

For a few years, Château Rahoul sucesses in revealing the attractive aspects of the Sémillon and in balancing the energy given by the Sauvignon, to create in the end a seducing wine with parfumes of exotic and citrus fruits, with a great long finish. The reviews are more and more unanimous : the wne collect vintage after vintage many 90+. The barrel ageing beeing limited at 6 months, the wine will be ready for collection in late June/early July.
