About Château Les Graves de Barrau:

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.
