Château La Grolet Cuvée Classique Rouge Côtes de Bourg

Château La Grolet Cuvée Classique Rouge Côtes de Bourg

The Hubert family own and farm two nearby vineyards, Château Peybonhomme-les-Tours in the Côtes de Blaye, and Château La Grolet to the south in the Côtes de Bourg. Both of these Right Bank Estates are farmed biodynamically. The Côtes de Bourg is a beautiful landscape of rolling hills that are sometimes referred to as the 'little Switzerland of the Gironde'. Here, the gravel-rich terroir makes for a more firmly structured red than its Côtes de Blaye sibling (Peybonhomme).

Château La Grolet Cuvée Classique Rouge blends 70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Malbec. The vines at Grolet are now approaching 50 years, and this wine was native fermented and aged in a mixture of concrete and wooden vessels (20%) before being bottled without fining or filtration, and minimum sulphur. Dusty stones, gravels, perfumed wild cherry and raspberry rule the lighter 12% palate, running over a bed of worked leather, and framed with grippy / gritty tannins. There's an inherent freshness that is charming, making this a useful partner for roast pork / beef / root veg.
