    November 14, 2016 - Not bad at all. The tannins have receded leaving a winsome blend of raspberry and light cherry - so not much typicity- but with a deeper base of cassis to back it all up. Enjoyable in an undemanding sort of way.

    August 12, 2016 - Quite enjoyable.
    No reason you should wait to drink.
    Will not improve.
    Will be stable for 2-3 years

    July 31, 2016 - The legs are fast. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like mineral. It tastes like mineral. The body is medium. The wine has narrow texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has high acidity.

    October 4, 2015 - 18/20 COUP DE CŒUR
    VISUEL : grenat joliment orangé
    OLFACTIF : racé. Il a des notes de pommes comme dans un cidre bouché fermier.
    GUSTATIF : excellent tanins qui se manifestent dès l'attaque. C'est expressif, intense, généreux. Que de plaisirs : il nous offre une texture qui flatte le palais. Le fruit demeure intense tout le long de la dégustation avec une superbe vivacité. À 10 ans, il est déjà excellent
    ENSEMBLE : ce Grave à encore de belles années devant lui, il est encore dans sa jeunesse.

    August 23, 2015 - Quite deep and rich with high acidity and the usual 05 tannic bite, almost salty, it's not bad. I expect some improvement with another year or two but the lack of pedigree will become apparent when the tannins recede - so all in all it's hard to see the point.
