As is often the case, red Graves sees Merlot coming into its own. There's some Cabernet Sauvignon too - 30% - which adds to the wine's structure and ageing potential. The gravelly soils of the region give it a unique character, as it does with its sibling white Graves wine.

Possibly the most important thing for you to know though is it's knockout value for a Bordeaux red wine that's had expensive oak ageing. There's a fresh youthfulness to the aromas, and good balance on the palate, with forest fruits being the dominant characteristic.

Prices for red Bordeaux wines have certainly risen over recent years, but this red Graves shows there are still good wines out there that don't cost a fortune. Mainly Merlot, with some Cabernet Sauvignon, it's the ideal 'everyday Claret'

The Producer

Château de Trébiac lies on a gravel plateau at Portets, 35 km south of Bordeaux and over the past five years, has undergone a complete renovation, both in the vineyard and the cellar. You'll now find these Graves wines offer exceptional value, with all the classic hallmarks of this Bordeaux wine region.

The Winemaker

Château Trébiac is skilfully managed and rehabilitated over the past 5 years by Arnaud de Butler to create the wine it is today.
Arnaud ferments the wine in a combination of stainless steel and cement vats for 18 days to maximise the concentration of the colour and flavour. The wine then sees three months French oak ageing and another nine months in stainless steel.

The Region

Bordeaux's only region famous for both red and white wine. Merlot dominates the red wines and a dry blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc dominate the whites. However, our Graves white wine is unusual in being 100% Semillon. That makes it a fantastic wine with a whole host of dishes.
The gravelly terrain, for which the region is named, create varied terraces on which to grow the vines. This terroir affects the winemaking and palate, with early-ripening vines and a savoury-minerally edge.

Blackened Steak With Red Wine Jus

A simple rump steak calls for a full-bodied red to square up to the dense structure of the meat. Head to rich, structured reds with some oak ageing to give a touch of spice.
