2009 de Chantegrive Rouge, Graves

SKU #1112422 92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A solid red with ripe plum, cherry and vanilla character. Full and savory with round and ripe tannins and a long, intense finish. Approachable, but better in 2015. Inner quote mark (7/2012)

90-92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Barrel sample. Bright herbaceous fruit, lots of freshness, lively citrus character. The wine is light, vivid, finally deliciously crisp. (RV) Inner quote mark (8/2010)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A major sleeper of the vintage, this blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is another 'best ever' performance. Notes of tobacco leaf, hot rocks, sweet kirsch and black currants are impressively displayed in this medium to full-bodied, velvety textured, very seductive style of wine. Drink it over the next decade. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2012)

Here is an easy to drink wine of great character with all the rounded warmth you expect for the 2009 vintage. Aromas of scorched earth, tar and roasted fruit lead to a smooth body of dark plums and ripe currants. This has gentle mineral and fine, ripe tannins on the supple finish. Always a delicious bargain.

Chantegrive reminds me why I love well made Graves so much. This outstanding 2009 value Bordeaux opens with classic notes of black fruit, cassis, graphite, minerals and a hint of dried tobacco. It's medium-to-full-bodied with substantial ripe tannins that are buried under layers of ripe, dense black fruit. Whether you put a steak on the grill and open this on a late summer evening or save it for the winter months, this $20 gem is sure to please.

Very attractive nose of crushed stones and a bit of wet earth followed by delicate cassis, blackberries, and some tobacco. The ripe fruit on the palate along with its cocoa powder notes and black olives are surrounded by its acidity, and present but ripe tannins, keeping all in check. A beautiful wine, certainly to have by the case.

This delightful value red has graced our shelves for the past five years. We have sold over 3600 bottles. Some mineral notes on the nose. The wine is soft and forward on the palate with a touch of toasty oak. Round tannins and lingering finish. All this for under $20.
Drink from 2015 to 2020
