Château Baret is an up-and-coming wine property in the Graves appellation owned by the Borie-Manoux negociant company. Borie-Manoux itself is one of Bordeaux’s oldest merchant houses and belongs to the Castéjà family, who are also proprietors of the celebrated Pauillac Classed Growth Ch Batailley. The family have poured investment into the estate to upgrade the quality of both the red and the white wine, but it is the white which has made more progress recently.
The vineyards are planted with 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc for the reds and 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Sémillon for the whites. The reds are aged for 12-18 months in oak barrels, 20% of which are new each vintage. The whites are barrel-fermented and spend 8 months on their lees in barrel, one fifth of which are new.
