Château Grossombre de Saint-Joseph Red

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Château Grossombre de Saint-Joseph Rouge

This remarkable wine immediately attracts one's attention because of its deep reddish-black colour. The bouquet strikes a fine balance between vanilla nuances, smoky aromas and ripe fruit (mainly blackcurrant) overtones. Château Grossombre starts out quite smooth and is altogether generous and well-structured on the palate. Spicy, oaky notes prolong the pleasure of this rich wine that deserves to age.


Label of 2016 Château Grossombre de Saint-Joseph red
Appellation : Bordeaux supérieur

Wine style

Rich and Powerful

Grape blend

Merlot 50% / Cabernet Sauvignon 50%

Weather

2016 was one of the finest vintages in the past 20 years. Winter was exceptionally wet and mild, and it rained a great deal in spring until June. However, the weather changed radically in mid-June, turning warm and quite dry, with cool nights. Ideal conditions for growing excellent wine grapes!

Tasting Comment

Appareance

This wine is a deep red colour with almost black highlights.

Nose

The powerful bouquet features toasty oak aromas which beautifully balance out its elegant fruitiness, alongside slightly spicy, black fruit overtones.

Mouth

Wonderfully rich, full-bodied, and delicious on the palate. The elegant tannins naturally suggest good ageing potential. This wine is sure to impress, and goes perfectly with beef tartare, simmered pork, or a simple hamburger.
