Chateau La Grave

The winery is located in the municipality Pomerol in the area of the same name (Bordeaux). The last part of the name used to be “Trigant de Boisset”, which referred to an owner family in the 19th century. This has not been the case since the mid-1990s, but it still appears on the bottle label under "Château La Grave" in a much smaller font. Confusingly, there are wineries called Château La Grave in the Fronsac / Bordeaux and Minervois / Languedoc areas as well Château de la Grave in Bourg / Bordeaux. That is why the object in question is often referred to as “Chateau La Grave à Pomerol”. It was founded in 1971 by the family empire Moueix acquired. The vineyards cover nine hectares with Merlot (85%) and Cabernet Franc (15%). The long-lived red wine is aged for 16 to 20 months in 25% new barriques. The second wine is called "Domaine de Boisset Trigant".
