Graves

A large area of varied soil types (despite the gravel its name refers to), the Graves on the River Garonne produces red, dry white and sweet white wines with little fanfare, relatively modest investment and often excellent results. There are no world-famous châteaux and the large area under vine is a patchwork of small vineyards that are predominantly family owned. If this sounds unlike elsewhere in Bordeaux, then the prices can also reflect this with value for money and quality often hand in hand.

Some critics will swear that the gravel of the Graves can be tasted in the red wines, but whatever the case it is true that red vines make up most of the planting. Merlot is increasingly important and the wines are often fruity and not intended for long-term ageing.

  1. Château Rahoul Blanc, Graves

    Château Rahoul Blanc, Graves, 2015 75cl

    A fantastic blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc the nose is wonderfully expressive with notes of grapefruit, pear and a touch of fennel for added complexity. The palate has pleasing depth of fruit with citrus and pear being particularly prominent and even some vanilla notes which are most likely a product of fermentation taking place in oak.

  2. Château Rahoul, Graves

    Château Rahoul, Graves, 2011 75cl

    An interesting nose of red fruit, dark cherries and smoke is joined by leather and black fruit on the palate. The tannins are still quite supple and may benefit from a couple of years further ageing.

  3. Château Trebiac, Graves, 2012

    Château Trebiac, Graves, 2012 75cl

    Softer than a lot of Graves this still has strong tannin but it's balanced by plummy fruit on the front palate. This makes for a red that has good weight and silky finish whilst still hinting at robustness
