Chateau La Grolet Cote de Bourg Origines 2019

Tete-de-Cuvee

The estate fruit sourced from sunny, exposed hillsides and terrace of the "Right Bank" Bordeaux - OG - old school: soft, beautifully balanced and approachable, yet lean, pure and refreshing, with enough acidity to give life and shape to the wine. Grolet, also owned and farmed by the  "Vignerons" Famille Hubert Proprietaire, is a great value, year in and year out. Fleshy and long on the palate, immediately displaying black fruit aromas and then developing mild tobacco and cocoa notes as it ages.
