2014 Petit Gravet St Aine Bordeaux
Cabernet Franc dominant with a splash of Merlot creating a wine that’s polished and powerful. From one of the very rare certified organic vineyards on the Right Bank of Bordeaux, specifically Saint Emilion.
Dark red fruit with a backbone of mineral and earth. The palate weight is medium to full with fine tannin.
This isn’t the sort of Bordeaux that will send you sideways with overt oak influence and soaring alcohol, instead it shows restraint and complexity. You could happily enjoy now or cellar for 10-15 years.
