Château Grossombre de Saint-Joseph Red

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.

Wine style

Rich and Powerful

Grape blend

Cabernet Sauvignon 50% / Merlot 50%.

Weather

The weather was ideal in 2005 and produced a superb vintage in Bordeaux. It was exceptionally dry for the region from winter to autumn. Sunshine was substantial starting in late spring. Summer temperatures were high, but there was nothing approaching a heat wave.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

A brilliant garnet red color.

Nose

Filling the glass there are strawberry and raspberry aromas that are coupled with light toasty vanilla notes.

Mouth

Soft and rich up-front. Ample and round, the silky tannins are present all the way through to the finish. The oak is well integrated and does not overshadow the fruit aromas. Elegant and persistent, it finishes on cherry notes. This wine is ready to drink today. (January, 2010)
