Les Granges 2006, A.C. Haut Medoc

£19.95 £17.95

Les Granges is produced by Edmond de Rothschild, and was first introduced in 1991. The fruit used to produce this vintage derives from both Château Clarke in Listrac-Medoc, and Château Malmaison in the neighbouring appellation of Moulis-Medoc. The 2005 vintage was a hard act to follow, but the 2006 produced one of the finest Les Granges to date. The Merlot rich blend has softened beautifully during nine years in the bottle to reveal a complex and fully mature claret that offers immediate charm.

Tasting notes

Les Granges 2006 possesses a subtle garnet rim lending an indication to its maturity. The nose is typical of mature claret with cigar box, earthy spice, cedar and black fruit. This vintage requires a short decanting period to coax the best from the palate. Once decanted expect suave black fruit; mainly blackberry and black cherry with a peppering of tobacco. The fruit is still fresh and vibrant yet the fairly significant bottle age has enabled the tannins to melt lending a wonderful elegant texture.
