Winemaker's Notes:

Chateau Les Gravières is a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru made from the vines at Saint-Sulpice de Faleyrens. The Merlot vines here are 50 years old, planted in a mix of sand and gravel with a cool ferriferous subsoil. The color is a dense but transluscent plum, the nose then offers black fruits with hints of spice, clove and tobacco, echoed on the palate which has a good backbone and very fine grained tannins. Made with 100% Merlot grapes.
