Graves de Vayres, a wine from Bordeaux France Vineyards

Graves de Vayres is an Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC) for red and white wines in the Bordeaux wine region of France. It is located within the Entre-Deux-Mers subregion of Bordeaux.

The Red Graves de Vayres is ruby in colour. When the wine is young, due to the dominant Merlot it is fresh and highly fruity.

Dry white Graves de Vayres wines are made from 100% Sauvignon grapes. These wines are fresh, lively, and perfumed with floral notes and hints of citrus fruit. Barrel-fermented wines made with 100% Sémillon grapes are characterised by their slick, buttery, and rich, rounded texture. The sweet moelleux variety of Graves de Vayres is made from 100% Sémillon grapes, which are harvested only when they are over-ripe. This gives sweet and honey notes, and a wine pale yellow in colour. The majority of dry white Graves de Vayres is in fact composed of a blend of 70% Sauvignon, 20-25% Sémillion and 5-10% Muscadelle grapes.
