Chateau Les Grands Chenes 2018 Medoc Bordeaux France
93 points, James Suckling - Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 les Grands Chênes comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant notes of stewed black plums, warm cassis and boysenberries, plus suggestions of pencil shavings, wild sage and crushed rocks. The medium to full-bodied palate is packed with energetic, crunchy black fruits, supported by fine-grained tannins and tons of freshness, finishing with a compelling herbal lift.
Tasting Notes - Ripe blackberry and blackcurrant on the nose with cloves, damp earth and a touch of orange zest. It’s medium-bodied with firm, sleek tannins. Lovely precision and evolution with spice and walnut notes coming out on the finish. Try from 2024.
The Typicity of a red Grand Vin from the Medoc, bearing the signature of Bernard Magrez. Situated in Saint-Christoly du Médoc on the Left Bank of Bordeaux, Château Les Grands Chenes has quite a rich history. The vineyards of the estate were planted around a fortress dating back to the 16th century. This Medoc wine region benefitted greatly from its proximity to the port of Saint-Christoly du Medoc, from which they shipped their wines, enjoying a great commercial boom.
Owned by Bernard Magrez, the Chateau Les Grands Chenes estate expands over 46 hectares of vines planted on soils of Garonne gravel. The vines are 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is produced under the expert advice of famous French winemaking consultant Michel Rolland.
