Chantegrive 2012 Graves

( 0 Reviews )

90 points James Suckling

Aromas of spices, plums and strawberries follow through to a medium to full body, velvety tannins and a bright finish. Hints of vanilla on the finish. Better in 2017. (2/2015)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The Leveque family has hit pay dirt again with this 2012 Graves. An inky, bluish/purple color, and an equal part blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the wine shows terrific fruit, great purity, graphite and underlying earthy burning ember notes. It has medium body and loads of fruit, depth and light tannin in the finish, showing this wine can be drunk early, or cellared for up to a decade. A sleeper of the vintage. (RP) (4/2015)

Wine Spectator

This sports a brambly feel, with leather and bay adding some funk to the core of blackberry, plum and black currant preserves. Turns a touch chewy on the finish, revealing a bitter espresso hint. Shows character, though the gamy rusticity isn't for everyone. Drink now through 2018 (3/2015)
