One of the few blockbuster wines in this vintage, Gracia’s 2011 exhibits an opaque blue/purple color along with gorgeous aromas of graphite, chalk, black currants, blueberries, camphor and a hint of truffles. Full-bodied and rich, with good acidity, this luscious St.-Emilion should drink well in 2-3 years and last for 15.
This pumps out exotic ganache, fig sauce and blackberry coulis notes, with a hefty frame of roasted vanilla and espresso hints. This ambitious version has a lot going on, but manages to pull it off. Best from 2015 through 2022.
"The miniature jewel of a property (all approximately five acres of it) has produced a world-class wine that is one of the superstars…”
– Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Chateau Gracia- the original garagiste winery from Bordeaux! Located in the charming town of St. Emilion, the winery has land on a 4.4-acre parcel and produces nearly 550 cases of wine in a good vintage. The wines are known for being lush and concentrated, and have been continuously well-received in the industry. The chateau is owned by Michel Gracia, a St. Emilion local, who is also a well-established contractor and stone mason that has built prestigious estates including Cheval Blanc, Petrus, and many more. Because of their extremely low yields, the wines of Chateau Gracia require attention to detail and great effort during winemaking, but the final product is considered a masterpiece.
