Chateau La Graviere in the Lalande de Pomerol
appellation has been owned by the Pere Verge family since 1985, when
the property was bought by Catherine Pere Verge. At the original time of
the purchase, the vineyard was closer to only 2 hectares of vines.
Subsequent purchases increased the estate to its current 7 hectare size.

The Pere Verge family also count among their chateau holdings, three well-known estates in Pomerol, Chateau Le Gay , Chateau La Violette and Chateau Montviel
. The family also owns Monteviejo, which is situated in Mendoza
Argentina. The vineyards of Monteviejo are located in Clos de Los Siete,
in the Mendoza appellation. All the estates are now ably managed and
controlled by the son of Catherine Pere Verge, Henri Parent.

The 7.5 hectare Right Bank vineyard of Chateau La Graviere has a terroir of mostly gravel and clay soils. The vineyard is planted to 92% Merlot , 4% Cabernet Franc and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon
. As I mentioned, the vines are old. On average, much of the vineyard
is close to 50 years of age. The vineyard is situated in Neac, not far
from the border of Pomerol and close to Chateau Rouget
. To produce the wine of Chateau La Graviere, the wine is vinified
using micro vinification techniques. The wine is then aged in 50% new,
French oak barrels for 12 to 15 months before bottling. There is a
second wine, Moulin de La Graviere.

Interestingly, the majority of the production at the estate is
actually placed in the second wine, Moulin de La Graviere. Now, that is
what I call a serious commitment to produce the best, quality wine
possible, as that takes place in every vintage. On average, the total
production at Chateau La Graviere is close to 4,000 cases of wine per
year. Michel Rolland acts as the consultant.
