Château de la Grave Cuvée Nectar 2002

Saturday, March 5th, 2011

Vintage: 2002
Type: Bordeaux Blend
Country: France – Bordeaux – Côtes de Bourg

90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet.

Excellent nose of berries with a hint of moss and earth. Flavours of robust dark cherry, silky tannins and slight hints of oak. Drinking nicely at the moment but will keep for a few more years yet. Very good and highly recommended.

Château de la Grave Hommage 2009

Saturday, November 20th, 2010

Vintage: 2009
Type: Rosé Blend
Country: France – Bordeaux – Côtes de Bourg

This is a very special rose wine. It looks like a rose but acts like a red. On the nose, it has very intense fruity flavours (strawberry-like) but on the palate, it tastes of light spices and subtle oak.

I think this wine would fit in at an al fresco late lunch or early dinner of tapas or a variety of roasted veggies, pitas and dips. Delicious! I hope you find this wine as pleasantly surprising as I did!
