Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Critical Acclaim

"This has the earthern cool of cave, its bright red cherry flavors shaded toward dark rose and smoky tannins. Quiet rather than flash, this has enough flavor concentration and spicy tannins to develop over the next several years."
90 Points

"The 2010 Beaune Greves impresses for its textural depth, richness and overall complexity. There is plenty of volume in the fruit in the style of the vintage, but with plenty of underlying minerality. All in all, this is a terrific Greves well worth considering. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022."

The Château Les Graves de Barrau is part of an estate, 11 miles north of Bordeaux, that has been famous for centuries. Set high up on a south-facing plateau, the vineyard benefits from an exceptional position giving the grapes excellent ripeness.

The Musset family has been on this estate for several generations. Serge Musset took over in 1966. With all the savoir-faire of his ancestors, he grows the vines in the traditional way and makes his wine slowly and patiently.
