Really complex array of aromas with meat and veg evident. Intense and deep-flavoured. Lovely richness underneath. Yet with a massive charge of tannins for the future.
Anticipated maturity: 2025-2045

The 2016 la Grave is a blend of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. It has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and features notions of black and red plums, baked cherries and crushed blackberries with hints of vanilla pod, milk chocolate and cardamom plus a waft of underbrush. Medium-bodied, soft and plush, it delivers bags of warm red and black fruits with plenty of spicy accents and a long savory finish.
Anticipated maturity: 2019-2034
