Futures 2015: Appellation Graves

The Graves appellation is found on the Left Bank of the Garonne. It is the most southern of the Bordeaux wine regions. Its 3,000 hectares are a blend of many different types of soil, including gravel, sand, clay and silt. Indeed, the appellation takes its name from its soil, as the word “Graves” is French for gravel.

The red wines are a blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc and malbec, and the whites created from sauvignon blanc and sémillon.

2015 in Graves:

Spotlight on the 2015 vintage: 2015 in Bordeaux started with an unusually mild spring. May, June and July subsequently were warm and dry, allowing the vines to grow rapidly. An even and consistent véraison occurred in early August. Autumn saw cooler, damp weather, helping build aromatic complexity and power in the grapes before harvest. The highly-anticipated vintage promises to be one for the ages.
