Chateau de Chantegrive Graves 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Graves|
|Brand||Chateau de Chantegrive|
Born and raised on our magnificent soil of gravel and pebbles, our great reds perfectly express our terroir. They are full bodied and powerful when young, smooth and ample when the years have passed. The limestone and clay subsoil provides good balance. This wine combines freshness and refinement thanks to our two key grape varieties, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The bouquet is dominated by red fruit aromas, which is also the case on the palate where spices and, for vintages in the hotter years, notes of blackberry and grilled almonds are also present.
One of the leading estates in the Graves has produced an elegant, balanced wine. Wood aging has added to the fruit tannins to give plenty of structure to go with the black-currant fruits. This is a wine to age, drink from 2023.
