Winemaker's Notes:

The color is bight red with a fresh nose dominated by red berries. On the palate, the wine is very elegant with a nice balance and a good finish. Flavors of red fruits and some delicious notes of roasted coffee are present.

This vineyard is only planted with red grape varieties: 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The appellation is Bordeaux and the estate lies between Fronsac and Bourg.

My Notes:

About Chateau Grand Village:

The illustrious and famed Bordeaux negociant firm of Jean Pierre Moueix was founded by Jean Pierre Moueix in 1937 and now owns and holds exclusive rights to sell and manage some of the greatest vineyards on the right bank of Bordeaux. The Moueix family and their long-time winemaker, Jean Claude Berrouet, have defined a style of winemaking distinguished by integrity and total devotion to the expression of each individual vineyard.

The Chateau Grand Village estate is owned by Jacques Guinaudaeau, owner and winemaker of the illustrious and very rare Chateau Lafleur Pomerol. The estate is managed in the same way as Lafleur using classic "jardinage" technique: crop thinning, hand harvesting, table sorting, small batch fermentations preceded by a gentle cold soak and micro vinifications.
