Graves Wine


Graves is a very important part of Bordeaux, located downstream (south) of the city of Bordeaux, south of the Medoc. The name refers to its gravelly soil. The Medoc was just a swamp and it was Graves that produced the best wines of the region until the Dutch drained the Medoc in the 17th century. The region is known for white wines, especially (but not only) botrytized dessert-style ones like Sauternes, but is also home to Haut-Brion, one of the original First Growths, and, in fact, produces more Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated reds than whites.

  • I've long had a weak spot for those Graves blends, though I've probably had 10 Domaine de Chevalier to every one Haut Brion Blanc, price not being the only issue. I've told myself there must be some cultish factor surrounding Mount Mary to justify that price on release.Do you usually drink structured reds with such spicy dishes? I've had some lu... Read More

  • Malartic Lagraviere Blanc 92 2013


    The 2013 Malartic blanc opens furtively with a scent of musk, lemon grass and crushed gooseberry. From here, it just gets better:on the palate are notions of white pepper, more green fruit (gooseberry again) and a hint of almond bitters on the finish. Deep, dense and viscous without a heavy hand, this wine is superb. 93. Read More
