Clos de Grives is wonderfully vibrant in colour with a rich complex nose of chocolate and mocha underlaid by intense fruit character and a hint of tobacco. The tannins and the oak are wonderfully well integrated and the finish is a joy, a rare mixture of complexity, concentration and elegance.
Spectacularly deep and dark in colour with an almost silky sheen. The nose is a complex melange of fruit, secondary aromas like tar and leather and a touch of spicy oak. This is echoed on the palate. The tannins are firm but ripe and elegant and the finish is extremely long and fine.
