La Grave a Pomerol 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"Aromas of plum and chocolate follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a chocolate and fruit aftertaste. Long and silky. Very beautiful...92-94" -WS 4/06."A strong effort from this generally elegant, light-bodied, finesse-styled cuvee, the 2005 exhibits more depth than normal along with deep raspberry and black cherry fruit intermixed with licorice and resiny pine forest notes. Sweet tannin, a velvety texture, impressive ripeness, and more stuffing and structure than usual suggest it can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years 88-90" -WA 5/07"Stylish and elegant, this 2005 has as much in common with a Cote de Beaune premier cru as it does with a Pomerol. Kirsch, raspberry, seaweed, and loamy soil aromas lead to a medium-bodied, finesse-styled claret possessing sweet tannin, pure fruit, and a sensual personality. It begs to be consumed over the next decade..." -WA 04/08

Château de la Grave:
This is a 14th century castle that was restored in the 19th century and now used as an upmarket guest house. The Bassereau family bought it in 1900 and it is now run by Philippe and Valerie Bassereau.There are 45 hectares of vines and a range of red,rose,white and sparkling Bordeaux wines are made. The estate should not be confused with Chateau La Grave in Pomerol.
