Château Petit Gravet Aine St. Emilion Grand Cru 2005

Member Review by raindance:

2009 Christmas Eve dinner w/ my mother, Tony & the Ball's. Mary's Stroganoff was superb as was this bottle of Bordeaux. Probably should have cellared it for a few more years to let it mature. The last sip was better than the first, and thank God Santa was coming later that night to brighten my mood, after I saw the last of the bottle disappear.

Another garagiste estate composed of nearly seven acres, Petit Gravet Anie is fashioned from 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot, and tiny yields (25 hectoliters per hectare). A deep ruby/purple color is followed by a wine with loads of minerality, a strong tannic structure, fine texture, medium body, and laser-like precision as well as delineation. Not a blockbuster St.-Emilion, it is a terroir-based, elegant, restrained effort that should age nicely for 15 or more years.
