LA VIOLETTE DU MANOIR
2016 Côtes de Castillon Château Manoir du Gravoux
|Sub-district||Saint Emilion & Satellites|
|Village||Côtes de Castillon|
This is another great effort from Francois Thienpont. It comes exclusively from a 2 Hectare plot that the family rent on a very long-term basis. The vines were planted in 1958 and that old vine intensity is clear. Although this is mostly Merlot - the 8% of Cabernet Franc stands proud. A beguiling nose leads to a gorgeously svelte palate layered with spiced plum - well-baked, dark fruits lifted with cinnamon and cloves - some fresher black cherry flesh adds a perk and gentle brightness. Deliciously sophisticated and really sleek 'right-bank' claret. Yes. L&S (Mar 2020)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
