The Château du Seuil Graves red wine is made from a blend of 50%Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. The different varieties are fermented individually in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures, then pressed and passed into barrels to undertake malolactic fermentation. The resulting wines are fruity, well balanced with integrated oak flavours and firm round tannins. Additionally, in recent years the wine has developed the peppery characteristics of a classic Graves red. The finished wine is aged in oak for up to 18 month prior to bottling. It is pleasing on the palate, fresh and have a complex aftertaste. Delicious to drink now but can be stored for up to 10 years.

Wine EnthusiastThere is a strongly herbaceous, almost cat-like character in this wine that hints at New Zealand. At the same time, the weight and structure is all Bordeaux. It's a wine from a good white-wine vintage showing touches of wood as well as intense fruitiness. Drink from 2015.

Wine SpectatorA textbook version, with a briary, lightly chewy edge to the steeped plum, blackberry and anise notes, giving way to a tarry spine on the finish. Should mellow nicely with modest cellaring. Drink now through 2018. 3,330 cases made.
