Winemaker's Notes:

This estate has been well-known for several centuries and is located 18 miles north of the city of Bordeaux. A luscious and fruity Bordeaux wine made by Dominique Hebrard of the Cheval Blanc family.

60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc

Nice, dark ruby color. Reveals beautiful aromas of cherry and blackberry with a hint of vanilla. Medium-bodied, it has dark berry flavours, well-balanced tannins and a long, smooth finish.

About Chateau Les Graves de Barrau:

The Ch√Ęteau 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.
