Magnum Chateau Garraud

Magnum Chateau Garraud

Ref: A745510

Lalande de Pomerol, Néac

The 2010 Garraud is so finely tuned by mother nature and good vineyard management that is hard to conceive of how it could be any better. It is stunningly concentrated, jam-packed with super-rounded ripe blackcurrant fruit. The tannins and not in the least bit harsh making the wine hard to resist even when relatively young. The finish is incredibly long. One of the finest Garraud for many a year and perhaps hust a shade up on the hyper-opulent 2009.

Made from a variety of terroirs (deep gravel, sandy soils and clay on the classic crasse de fer ) which ensures a wine of considerable complexity. [Drink: 2014-2026]

The average vines are aged 40 years. The wines see 20 days of maceration - 80% of wine aged in French oak barrels (1/3 new oak, 2/3 used). They produce roughly 80,000 bottles per annum.

The new generation that is now in charge at this splendid 32 hectare (total incl l'Ancien) property has managed to elevate Château Garraud into star-status in a comparatively short space of time. The vineyards are situated in the prime zone of Néac, where all the region’s most respected châteaux are to be found. The dynamic Jean-Marc Nony is employing Michel Rolland as consultant oenologist and minute attention to detail has resulted in a run of vintages which are nothing short of spectacular.

Champagne Gremillet
Extremely elegant wines that have undergone a surprisingly long bottle-ageing process that gives them a roundness not often found at this level.
