Chateau Haut Gravet St. Emilion 2009
|Brand||Chateau Haut Gravet|
Wine AdvocateProduced by the Aubert family, this sleeper of the vintage offers wonderful freshness, purity, and depth of flavor in a full-bodied, richly fruity style. Black currant, black cherry, cedar, and Christmas fruitcake characteristics are found in this complex, already endearing St.-Emilion. It should drink well for a decade or more. (Tasted two times.) (88-90)
Wine SpectatorRipe, with toasty spice notes and aromatic blueberry, plum and blackberry fruit, followed by a toasty, anise-tinged finish. Rather direct. Drink now through 2017.
