La Grave is an under the radar property estate situated on the western side of the plateau of Pomerol. As its name indicates, the terroir of Château La Grave is almost pure gravel, marking the beginning of a mile-long gravelly strip that continues into Saint-Émilion, passing through Château Cheval Blanc before ending at Château Figeac. The difference at Lagrave is that the vineyard is planted 100% to Merlot. The result in 2020 was a creamier style of wine, thanks to the warmer soils.

Château Gazin is located on the north-eastern part of the Pomerol plateau, between Châteaux Petrus, l'Evangile and Lafleur-Gazin, on a terroir of Gunzian gravel with a subsoil of blue and green... clay. The vineyard is managed with an environmentally friendly approach: ploughing by horse, organic fertilizers, minimum use of pesticides, mating disruption, manual harvests. l’Hospitalet de Gazin, the second wine of Château Gazin, has been produced since 1986 from the fruit of younger vines. In 2020 the chateau underwent a more stringent selection producing a much more interesting wine with density and complexity.Duty Status: In BondAvailability: Future Arrival
