Winemaker's Notes

One of the wines produced on this estate is the Château Les Graves de Barrau, made from a strict selection of the best vats; this selection is carried out directly by Dominique Hébrard during the blending process. This wine has lots of finesse and all the characteristics of a great Bordeaux: well-balanced tannins, marked by the expressive fruitiness of the terroir.

Nice crimson color and lovely aromas of cherry with just a hint of vanilla. Well-rounded and fleshy in the mouth, with well-balanced tannins. A long, silky finish.

I found this wine surprisingly good, a well balanced blend of Cabernet and Merlot. It lived up to its billing.

This is the worst wine I have consumed in a long long time. It was bitter, tannic, undrinkable. I did not finish the glass I was drinking and dumped the rest.
