Château Rahoul 2016 Graves Rouge 75cl

The evolution and regular adaptation of equipment and techniques has brought meticulous work in the vineyard. This allows Chateau Rahoul to develop very seductive red Graves where the expression of fruity and elegant Merlot is enhanced by the complexity of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit -Verdot.


Pairs well with…

  • Brie
  • Duck
  • Fungi
  • Lamb
  • Red Meat
  • Venison
"Bright and fresh with floral and blueberry aromas as well as some pine-nut undertones. Full body, round and silky tannins and a crisp finish. Delicious bottle already. Drink or hold." - Awarded 92 Points, James Suckling

"A solid core of plum and black currant fruit is backed by light tar and black tea notes. Reveals well-embedded grip. Drink now through 2021. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 11,300 cases made, 100 cases imported." - Awarded 88 Points, Wine Spectator

"Bright cherry red. Complex aroma that has plenty of dark-red fruit but also a more savoury/mineral quality. Dry texture but not drying, the texture adds elegance. Chewy finish with just enough freshness." - Awarded 16 Points, Jancis Robinson
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot
"At Château Rahoul, the first buds appeared around 10 April, which is fairly normal for this sandy, gravel soil. The first few hot and sunny weeks of spring stimulated the growth of vegetation and a very even flowering took place in these ideal conditions. Such good weather throughout the season meant that the vines were in excellent health. The rate at which the vines were growing began to slow a little in July, and veraison of the red varieties didn’t happen until the beginning of August on the gravel parcels of the vineyard, which are more sensitive to lower volumes of rainfall. We took full advantage of such a healthy vineyard and some fantastic weather conditions by harvesting the red grapes over the course of three weeks, allowing detailed plot by plot management, allowing each parcel to ripen fully without any pressure to pick earlier"
Dense and complex aromas on the nose of dark fruits and spices. The palate is concentrated and attractive with perfectly silky tannins and a harmony of fresh, fleshy fruits.
