Wine-growing at Château Grivière began in the 17th century, when its gravel and clay-limestone soils in the northern Médoc commune of Blaignan, five miles beyond the St-Estephe appellation, was first planted with vines.
The vineyard is planted with a grape mix of 60 % Merlot, and 40 % Cabernet Sauvignon, and the vines average 30 years of age. After vinification specially adjusted to suit each varietal, wines are blended and aged for 12-16 months in french oak barrels, after which they are bottle-aged in the chateau's spectacular underground cellar.
Only when our customers and we agree that a vintage is ready to be enjoyed, do we release the wines, sending them to over 40 countries around the world.
Château Grivière is vinified in a powerful fruit-forward style, with ripe dark fruits, balanced by a rich, round and chewy palate, with a perfumed nose of orange blossom and delicate spices, and smooth silky tannins.
