Like a print of a Médoc property in the 19th century, the terroir of Château La Gravette Lacombe stands proudly in the centre of the town of Lesparre Médoc.
Its highly specific soils of fine gravel produce excellent Cabernet Sauvignon, grapes bursting with exuberance. This variety courts just the right quantity of the Petit Verdot and Merlot in the blend to gain a certain definitely Médoc style.
These precious, aristocratic grapes are then vinified in the modern facilities of the LACOMBE family at CIVRAC MEDOC.
In the vinification methods and in the ageing process, the aim is to observe the distinction and natural elegance of the fruit.
This estate, listed by Cocks and Feret as a Bourgeois Growth in 1893 and 1908, benefits today from an up-and-coming vineyard. This château, perfectly maintained, is assured of a great reputation within the next decade.
