CHATEAU LA FLEUR DES GRAVES
CHATEAU LA FLEUR DE GRAVES
An 18th century estate and Villa that has been re-invigorated since the Glotin family (owners of Chateau Goudichaud) since purchasing it in 2002. This cuvee is a 50:50 blend of Cabernet and Merlot grown on gravelly soils. Fermentation is in stainless steel to preserve primary fruit character before a year of ageing in French Oak to soften and round out the wine.
A warm vintage in Bordeaux sees good intensity to the red and black fruit profile. There a floral high notes and a dusting of tobacco and cedar. All framed by supple, ripe tannins that are well integrated making for great immediate drinking.
