Excellent property owned by the Cazes family of Lynch-Bages, one to look for in the Graves. This is a blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc, aged in 33% new oak. Located to the north of the Graves region, 10km south of Léognan, this has a fine tannic structure, very easy to drink, pretty layering of grilled red fruits with gentle acidity and a lovely fresh feel. 13%abv, and cropped at a fairly high 52hl/h.
