A brief history
The Denis Barraud Estate covers 36 Hectares (86 acres) in the Saint-Emilion and Bordeaux appellations. The origins of the estate date from the 19th Century and it has been handed down from father to son since then. The Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Chateau Les Gravieres and the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Lynsolence perfectly reflect Mr Barraud's thirst for excellence, from the way the vines are grown, right through to the winemaking and aging techniques used. This demanding approach is equally applied to the other growths of the domaine: The Saint-Emilion Haut-Renaissance and the Bordeaux Chateau de la Cour d'Argent, the Bordeaux De Lyne and the Bordeaux Clairet De Lyne..
