2012 Château Grand Portail – Bordeaux, France


Château GRAND-PORTAIL – family estate for 6 generations is located in Escoussans within the Entredeux-Mers area but more precisely, in the heart of the small, distinctive and expressive Haut-Benauge appellation. In addition to the more famous whites this unique niche terroir produces rare to-find and remarkable red wines when the vines are planted on the best exposed and higher slopes, reaching here more than 100 meters, with a non-obscured view over the other side of the Garonne River, where lies the appellation of Graves. This wine is a modern style showing a charming nose of dark ripe blackcurrants and cherries, and exhibits a soft, round, juicy palate, perfect balance as well as a moderately long finish laced with unique mineral and graphite notes – a signature of this estate’s unique terroir. Remarkably elegant and complex for the appellation, this wine will offer lots of pleasurable drinking over the next 2-3 years.
