Petit Gravet Aine-Saint Emilion-Grand Cru-2010

Petit Gravet Aine
Saint Emilion
Grand Cru


80% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot (one of the highest % Cab Francs in all of Bordeaux). Powerful Bordeaux from a special vintage (2010: concentration and longevity.) Tasted 1/20/17: Black fruits, graphite, black truffle, inky, dried violets, acidity, earth, tobacco, tannins, savory. Still quite “cooped up.” Decant 3 hours. Or cellar and drink 2022 to ???

"Sweet, floral nose intermixed with blueberry and black raspberry fruits, graphite and incense. Rich, heady wine (14.6 Alc), sensational blackberry and graphite notes. Inky purple and full-bodied, this is a beauty that has enough tannin to suggest stashing it away for 3-4 years and drinking it over the following 20-25 years." Parker, February 2013
