Graves

Age-worthy red blends but equally prized for their dry, cellarable white blends, Graves and Pessac-Léognan, sometimes overshadowed by others, are not to be missed.


With an ancient winemaking tradition, in Graves you can find tannic and structured Cabernet and Merlot blends with plum, herbal, and spice notes.

However, they also produce lovely dry white wines too which are blends of Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc with citrus, apple, and mango notes and zesty acidity. The prices are lower than more famous regions, so it's easier to find a bargain!
