Flowers, spice, tobacco leaf, herbs, and red fruits are on the nose.

2017 Château Grand Village  (Bordeaux Supérieur) 91
Dark cherries, licorice and cocoa will have you convinced this wine is a Pomerol. On the palate, this medium-bodied charmer is silky, sweet and round. It was produced from a blend of 97% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc, setting a record for the highest amount of Merlot ever placed in the blend. The elevated proportion of Merlot on the limestone and the added sensation of minerality mixed with lush fruits makes this an instant enchantress. I marvel at this production because half of the vineyard was destroyed by frost, generating only 9% of the 2016 release.
