Château Les Gravettes, Bordeaux Supérieur 2008
Château Les Gravettes 2008 is a very special parcel we found and bought all we could. A deliciously mature claret from a good vintage with eleven years of bottle age that is drinking beautifully now. Wines of this age and price have all but disappeared from the market. A terrific bargain for all claret lovers – stock up while you can.
Remarkable brightness and freshness here for a wine of this age - ripe blackcurrant and plum flavours very much to the fore, with an appealing perfumed character on the nose. A touch of grip, and a hint of spice, but soft and luscious in texture and fruit-forward. Made from 70% merlot hence the plumpness, with cabernet adding a touch of depth and structure. A lovely drinking claret. Highly recommended.
