Château de Chantegrive Red Bordeaux Blend Graves 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"This consistent property has turned out an attractive, classic Graves revealing notes of smoked herbs, dusty, loamy soil and sweet cherries as well as black currants. Elegant, fruity and medium-bodied..." WA 05/11

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.

Dark and winey, with lots of steeped currant and crushed blackberry fruit wrapped with tarry grip. A licorice root edge frames the finish, which stays fleshy and muscular. Very solid. Best from 2014 through 2022.
