$139.00

A lovely estate situated on the western side of the plateau of Pomerol, Château La Grave dates back to the 19th century, when it was owned by the Trigant de Boisset family. As its name indicates, the terroir of Château La Grave is almost pure gravel, marking the beginning of a mile-long gravelly strip that continues into Saint-Émilion, passing through Château Cheval Blanc before ending at Château Figeac.

Acquired by Christian Moueix in 1971, Château La Grave was his first vineyard purchase. A great deal of attention was given to the renovation of the vineyard, château, and cellar in order to restore the wine’s place among the top wines of Pomerol.

The bouquet truly isn’t showing this wine’s age; it is developed and complex, displaying spiced fruit aromas of black forest cake and dried red roses with a hint of cacao bean. The palate presents red and black plums with  blackcurrant while at the finish there is an earthy, herbal note. Enjoy with eye fillet, slow cooked roasts, tomato-based pasta and hard cheese. Drinking beautifully now and up until 2025. 85% Merlot – 15% Cabernet Franc.
