Wines Cabernet Sauvignon
Château de Trébiac lies on a beautiful plateau at Portets, 35 km south of Bordeaux. The name is derived from the area’s gravel soils, which help to create the distinctive profile of Graves wines – particularly those made from Cabernet Sauvignon. While Merlot grows well in the heavier clay of places such as Saint-Emilion, Cabernet Sauvignon performs very well in free-draining gravel and sand.

Manager Arnaud Butler spent ten years making significant investments in both the estate's vines and winery, and runs the vineyard in a sustainable way (Agriculture raisonnée).

The Cabernet Sauvignon Grape

Late ripening so preferring warmer climates, Cabernet Sauvignon is the most-planted grapevine in the world. The offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, this grape variety’s home area is Bordeaux. It produces dark, blackcurranty, long-lived wines, frequently blended with Merlot and one or some of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Carmenère.

The small grapes are richly pigmented, have thick skins and proportionally large pips. After Bordeaux, California and Italy (one of the Super Tuscan ingredients) are most notable, but the grape is grown virtually everywhere in the wine world.
