Château de Chantegrive Red Bordeaux Blend Graves 2010
External Reviews for Château de Chantegrive Red Bordeaux Blend Graves
A fabulous sleeper of the vintage, Chantegrive’s 2010 is the best wine I have ever tasted from this estate, which has long made very good wines that represent terrific values. An equal part blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2010 exceeds all expectations. Notes of tobacco leaf, creme de cassis, barbecue smoke and loads of flesh, opulence and richness characterize this dense purple-colored wine, which is full-bodied and over-achieving. Drink it over the next decade. A major sleeper of the vintage.
Smoky, firm tannins, with black currant fruits, firmly dark, dry and tannic, with a solid structure.
