Chateau Chantegrive 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Lovely garnet colour, delightful, complex bouquet with hints of toast and ripe black fruit. The attack is mellow, the palate is very big, supported by subtle tannins.

A young, vibrant red from Graves that is medium bodied and fresh. This is a nice 2009 value that shows a leaner style of this vintage, with crushed rocks, forest floor, fresh flowers and red cherry. Bright on the palate, with red fruit, medium graine... John Sweeney. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Chantegrive 750ml

Solid spice, tobacco and mulled fig notes are laced with iron and singed cedar hints. A slightly taut feel on the finish holds this back a touch. Drink now through 2015. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

A major sleeper of the vintage, this blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is another “best ever” performance. Notes of tobacco leaf, hot rocks, sweet kirsch and black currants are impressively displayed in this medium to full-bodied, velvety textured, very seductive style of wine. Drink it over the next decade.
