(2011 Vintage) Grand Classique is a blend of the five noble grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Giving you a good depth of color, soft, round and showing some nice body. These wines often have great fruit concentration, softer tannins and are long-lived.
The Grand Classique varieties are from selected vineyard sites - handpicked, crushed, macerated, fermented and aged in French Oak Barrels separately. This way each variety enhances its character to bring this blend to its best.
Wine Spectator(2000 Vintage) "Dark, brooding style, with dark chocolate and espresso notes holding sway over black currant and cassis fruit. Thick, muscular texture and a long cocoa-stained finish complete the picture. A bit brutish now, but may open up to show more elegance. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2006. 1,800 cases imported. (JM) "
