About Chateau des Petites Granges 2018 Medoc
Jeb Dunnuck said about the 2018 Bordeaux "At a high level, the 2018s are ripe, sexy wines loaded with fruit and texture, yet they also display a remarkable freshness and purity (as well as singular characters) that make the vintage so special." and this wine is a bargain of the vintage from the Medoc region. A small 5 acre parcel with good gravelly soils and and clay subsoil has mature vines 9 to 15 years of age. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot, the wine was given some delicate oak treatment to add a note of toast and spice to the ripe black currant and cherry notes, along with hints wet stones, lavender and licorice. Drinks beautifully now but also can cellar for 3-5 years.
