Tasting Note:

Grand Village comprises 22% Bouchet (old vine Cabernet Franc clones taken from Lafleur) and 78% Merlot. It shouldn't come as a surprise that with this DNA, it is begging to resemble a little Lafleur. 2016 has until now been our reference point for Grand Village - this was a vintage when the tannic profile took on a grand vin pedigree. However, 2018 has ripped up the rule book. This is 2016 plus. Initially there are aromas of beautifully clear hedgerow fruits; so vivid and refined. On the palate there is a smooth core of crème de cassis, dark herb infused berries and stones. There such quality to the fruit, the texture, the finesse, the lift, the energy, the density and texture - it has real nerve and tension from start to finish, with a tannic profile that tantalises with minerals and salinity. It really is the most impressive Grand Village we have tasted to date. Bravo.
