Chateau La Grave a Pomerol 2019


In Stock

“The 2019 La Grave (or La Grave Trigant de Boisset to give it its full name) was picked from 19 September to 3 October and matured in 40% new oak. Now I have a soft spot for this cru; this latest vintage does not disappoint with vivacious black cherry, raspberry preserve and wilted iris scents, beautifully embroidered with the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, quite bold tannins. Arguably the complexity on the palate does not match that of the nose, though there is impressive volume and a wonderful tobacco and brine-tinged finish that makes an impression. I like it…but I have a nagging feeling it could give me more. Drinking window: 2024-2040. 89-91 points”
