Concentrated and pronounced, its appearance reveals great potential. This is echoed on the bouquet, intense and complex in equal measure, with elegant notes of jammy black fruit, and a subtle toasted character. Supple on the attack, revealing a complex, yet well balanced structure, and evolving into the most harmonious of finishes. Already drinking well now, this wine has remarkable ageing potential.
Château Grimont is seen here in all its glory, revealing its attractive dark ruby appearance. On the nose, spicy notes lead the way, only to be replaced by forest floor aromas of dark berries. On the palate, the wine is lovely and soft, with powerful, ripe tannins and a wonderfully long finish.
