Lovely red with currant and berry aromas and flavors and just a hint of walnut. Full-bodied yet bright and vivid. Delicious fruit and firmness. Shows depth and tension. One of best ever.

You feel the warmth of the summer in the texture and the character of the fruit here, but it has been extremely well handled, and there's a sense of lift alongside the Magrez signature glamour. Plush damson fruits demonstrate its ambition and sense of forward motion, with a flourish of oak edging. This takes its time and is chewy on the finish. Harvested 24 September to 11 October. Michel Rolland consults.

Winemakers Note

The 49-hectare large vineyard of Château Les Grands Chênes is located on the edge of the remains of an ancient fortress from the 16th century. This fortress is the witness of the historical dynamism in the international business trade of the Médoc region. It is in Saint-Christoly-du-Médoc, a town once known for its port,  that the vines of Château Les Grands Chênes are to be found. Ideally planted on a fine ridge of Garonne gravel, Château Les Grands Chênes makes the most of this very high quality terroir. Château Les Grands Chênes, owned by Bernard Magrez, produces a fine wine for those in the know, a privilege for wine lovers who like to make great discoveries.
