Tasting Note:

The Gratiot family have produced a sizeable wine in 2006, dark and concentrated and with great ageing potential. Particularly sensitive this year to the need for only the gentlest of macerations, to avoid over-extraction, they have created a beautifully balanced wine with a lush palate of pure dark red berry fruit on the nose, fine and fresh tannins accompanied by plentiful crushed blackcurrant and hedgerow berries on the palate. Supple, elegant and rich in character, this wine carries a considerable structure and will therefore require some years to reach its prime. A blend of 78% merlot, 20% cabernet franc and 2% cabernet sauvignon and, for us, one of the best value wines this year.
