Saint Emilion Grand Cru from the estate

    

(88 - 90)/100 Parker

When to drink this wine? Drink now through 2030.

Tasted by Neal Martin in 2017: "The 2016 Les Gravieres has a lovely perfumed bouquet of ripe red cherry and crushed strawberry, followed by a touch of orange blossom. The palate is quite powerful with grippy tannins and plenty of blackberry and blueberry fruit, leading to a structured tobacco-tinged finish. This is a well-made Saint Emilion.

I love this site. Whether it's for old wines, or recent ones. The choice of partner estates is impressive, and allocations are sold at fair prices. Ludovic's advice is always excellent.
