2016 Gracia, St-Émilion 12-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1468779 93-94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Great young wine with crushed-berry and stone character. Full body and polished tannins. Deep and beautiful. Exciting. Inner quote mark (4/2017)

91-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Gracia is a very appealing wine. An exotic mélange of crème de cassis, blueberry jam, chocolate, spice and leather gives the wine its sumptuous personality and striking inner sweetness. Soil-driven notes develop in the glass, but above all else, Gracia is a wine built on texture and fruit. Even with all of its richness, it has a good bit of freshness and plenty of tannic underpinning. It is also not as overdone as some other recent efforts. Jean-Philippe Fort is the consultant. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Gracia was tasted on two or three occasions. One bottle was showing too much volatile acidity; a second chez Jean-Luc Thunévin was much fresher with plenty of macerated small dark cherries and touches of menthol. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, not the most complex Gracia that I have tasted although I like the elegance conveyed on the finish that will need three of four years to absorb the new oak. (NM) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

90 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Another one of the original garagistes wines. This is plush, flexing its muscles through the mid-palate and managing to be hugely attractive in its black cherry, liquorice and dark chocolate abundance. One for the hedonists. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2017)
