2008 Chateau Les Gravieres Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Sold Out

Merlot-France-Bordeaux

This has a flattering, fleshy feel, with dark smoked mesquite and tobacco notes giving way to cocoa, plum sauce and roasted fig. A solid, hedonistic style, though perhaps a bit obvious for some. In the communes of St Sulpice de Faleyrens and St Laurent des Combes. France.

A sleeper of the vintage made from much lower yields (27 hectoliters per hectare compared to 43 hectoliters per hectare in 2010), the 2008 (100% Merlot) came in at 13% natural alcohol. This solidly constructed, dense, unfined and unfiltered St.-Emilion possesses plenty of richness as well as fruit. Enjoy it over the next decade.

Chateau Les Gravi res is a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru made from the vines at Saint-Sulpice de Faleyrens. The Merlot vines here are 50 years old, planted in a mix of sand and gravel with a cool ferriferous subsoil. The color is a dense but transluscent plum, the nose then offers black fruits with hints of spice, clove and tobacco, echoed on the palate which has a good backbone and very fine grained tannins. Made with 100% Merlot grapes.
