Château-de-Chantegrive Graves 2012


SKU 12125


Beautiful ruby color, seductive and complex on the nose with hints of toasted bread and ripe blackberry. On the palate the attack is direct and generous, underpinned by silky tannins. Can be enjoyed with red meat, grilled or braised, duck breast with ceps, game birds, poultry and mild cheeses.

Wine Enthusiast91-93. Barrel sample. This is a solid, tannic wine that's deeply concentrated and somewhat dark in style. The juicy blackberry fruits are constrained by a tight structure, minerality and a severe shell. The wine will need time to show it's true potential.

Wine SpectatorThis sports a brambly feel, with leather and bay adding some funk to the core of blackberry, plum and black currant preserves. Turns a touch chewy on the finish, revealing a bitter espresso hint. Shows character, though the gamy rusticity isn't for everyone. Drink now through 2018.
