Chateau Chevaliers Grezette, a subtle blend of 91% Malbec, 12 % Merlot, and 2% Tannat. Harvest happens mannually. The wine is matured in new oak barriques for 9 to 12 months
Colour: deep red.
Nose: lively red berry fruit aromas and licorice notes.
Palate: a supple attack and a nice texture with blackberry, black cherry fruit. A very balanced wine with smooth tannins and a long, harmonious finish.
Fantastic with BBQ, steaks and lamb shank.
This long-aging wine can be kept for 8 to 10 years, getting better all the time.
