Château Franc Grâce-Dieu

This small winery had been imported to the States prior to us picking them up.  I distinctly remember this wine and was disappointed that it disappeared off the market for a period of time.  I am excited to have reconnected with them and to support such a superior small production Bordeaux house.

Château Franc Grâce-Dieu is a 12 hectare Saint-Emilion Grand Cru estate. It’s situated near Château Figeac and is only 2 kilometers from Cheval Blanc. It benefits from a complex soil structure of brown sand, iron deposits in the subsoil and clay. It follows along the traditional Saint-Emilion properties with a grape variety proportion of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. The wine has ripe fruit aromas of black currant & blackberries, and a lightly toasted flavor with a touch of pencil lead & cedar. Complex, well-balanced. Unbelievable value, this wine!

Cheers!
