Recommended Red

If you fancy a bottle of red try Chateau Haut Gravier. It’s a super wine from the Cotes de Bourg. Chateau Haut Gravier is a good ruby colour and is packed with ripe black fruits with a hint of pepper on the nose. Having been aged for approximately 12 months in oak barrels there is a hint of this in the taste.

This well rounded red is a good example of wines from this quite small wine producing region. A region that boasts that it produces a better medium bodied red wine than its neighbour - Bordeaux.! Cotes de Bourg is located on the right bank of the Dordogne at the point where it meets the Gironde river 19 miles north of Bordeaux.

Chateau Haut Gravier is smooth and full and goes extremely well with steak on the BBQ! Not to mention Tagliatelle and Lasagne.
