I bought this bottle of wine for six pounds from a gentleman who usually sells wine using the website www.bidforwine.co.uk when I visited him to collect some other bottles I had bought through that site.The Appellation 'Graves de Vayres' should not be confused with that of 'Graves' although they are both Bordeauxs.Graves de Vayres is a Right Bank Claret and Chateau de Barre Gentillot Cuvee Jean Julien is made up of a fairly typical Right Bank blend of 70%merlot,25%cabernet franc and 5% cabernet sauvignon.It has also spent two years in oak barrels.I drank my bottle a couple of days ago with my supper of pork chops and I am afraid to say that I was a little disappointed but I am comparing it to some really fine clarets I have had recently and for similar money.It was not as fruity nor as soft as I would expect a Right Bank Claret to be and the tannins were stronger than I like.To be fair it was an OK wine but not one to write home about
