Château La Grolet Côtes de Bourg 2015

Château La Grolet Côtes de Bourg 2015

The biodynamic Château La Grolet is the sister property of Château Peybonhomme-les-Tours. It also lies on the right bank, in the appellation of Côtes de Bourg, between the Côtes de Blaye (to the north) and Fronsac (to the southeast). Quite unlike the monotonous flats of the Medoc, the Côtes de Bourg is an area of beautiful landscapes and is sometimes referred to as the 'little Switzerland of Gironde'. This is a Bordeaux appellation with an open and proud country personality. Here, the gravel-rich terroir makes for a more firmly structured, virile red than its sibling (Peybonhomme), though with just as much class. With its balance of ripeness and freshness, the 2015 vintage should be considered a triumph. 

This year's blend is Merlot (80%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (20%). The wine is crafted in a mixture of concrete and wooden vessels without any additions and the wine is bottled without fining or filtration. Only a little sulphur is used at bottling, otherwise the wine sees no additions at all. The nose, although deeply set at this stage, seeps graphite, blackberry liqueur, plum skin and ripe red fruits. The mouthfeel is intense, compact, fresh and balanced. There is plenty of dark, savoury fruit with silky tannins promising to meld beautifully with any moist beef or lamb dish--steak frites, please. The wine is pure and clean, yet lacks nothing in the character stakes. In short, a hearty, super authentic Bordeaux country red that represents, to our minds, remarkably wallet-friendly value.
