2014 Graves Rouges from Bordeaux
This 2014 Graves Rouges Chateau de Chantegrive is 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine offers a beautiful ruby-tinted red colour. The aromatic expression is seductive and complex on small and scrumptious red berries. On the palate, the attack is frank an ample, and the wood (from the ageing process) is noble and well-integrated. The whole is carried by tannins with a delicate, silky grain.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Château de Chantegrive (Rouge) 2014 has a forward nose with baked red cherries and light kirsch-like scents that are nicely defined. You could imagine this being very punter-friendly. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin. There is good depth here, sappy in the mouth with a brisk finish that might lack length, but I feel with expand during its élevage. Fine.
