Ratings and Tasting Notes:(AG=91-94) A sleeper in this vintage, the 2018 Les Gravi res (100% Merlot) is a very pretty and expressive Saint- milion. Freshly cut flowers, rose petal, mint and sweet red berry fruit are beautifully lifted in this very understated Saint- milion. Medium in body, refined and supremely gracious, the 2018 has a lot to offer. This is such a gorgeous wine. (RP=94-96) Made from 100% Merlot, the 2018 Les Gravieres is deep garnet-purple and rocks up with gregarious blueberry pie, chocolate-covered cherries and plum preserves scents with nuances of violets, spice cake and mocha. Big, full and decadently fruited, it has a firm frame of super ripe, grainy tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing very long and layered. (WS=88) Warmed plum and black currant preserve notes form the core in this offering, with ample toasted cedar, warm earth and tobacco notes framing it. The tobacco edge asserts itself steadily through the finish, giving it an old school feel. Drink now through 2026. 2,420 cases made, (JS=91-92) A solid 2018 with dark-berry, dark-chocolate and cedar character. Medium to full body. Flavorful finish.
