Chateau des Graves Graves 2018
Proprietary Blends | France
Graves is the land of spoke of the MOST famous, prestigious, and whoppingly expensive Chateaux on earth -- notably Chateaux Haut-Brion and La Mission Haut Brion. But, with enough persistence, you can find a few small family-run gems in the region, too. THIS wine is utterly superb! The property is located on the rounded hilltop of the Quaternary with extremely deep (up to 60 feet!) of pure gravel and pebbles, just like the all of the best terroirs on the Left Bank.
Chateau des Graves, which has been owned by the Lamothe family for over 200 years, is located in the village of Portets. Armand Butler runs the estate now, instituting many organic and biodynamic winegrowing principles. They have also received HVE3 standing for High Environmental Value Level 3, the highest certification level.
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot dominate in this excellent 2018 Bordeaux vintage, with bright red currant fruits, sweet tobacco, cigar box and cedar, and the all-important minerally note we love about this famous appellation. To our palates, the wines are the best in many years. Even in the $30 range they sing...at $15.95...well, AH-mazing!!
What can we say? ASTOUNDING at $15.95, and free shipping on 6 or more bottles, as always!. Grab it while we have it!
