A powerful and concentrated red wine from the Medoc

A prestigious property owned by Bernard Magrez since 1998, Chateau Les Grands Chenes is one of the key references of Bordeaux’s Left Bank. With this new vintage, the Chateau Les Grands Chenes 2017 continues to express the estate’s unique style, also expressing the typical characteristics of wines form the Medoc.

Extending over a vineyard of 34 hectares of vines aged 40 years on average, Chateau les Grands Chenes enjoys a terroir closely linked to the river, as the soils are composed of Garonne gravel.

With this new vintage made by consultant oenologist Michel Rolland, the Chateau Les Grands Chenes 2017 demonstrates the consistent style of the estate with a very qualitative profile, despite a difficult vintage. The blend is dominated by Merlot (60%), complemented by the other favorite red grape variety of the Medoc, Cabernet Sauvignon (40%).

With a very fruit-forward profile and highly concentrated aromatic palette, the Chateau Les Grands Chenes 2017 already shows a beautiful expression. On the palate, it displays a nice texture, dense and well balanced. This Medoc wine shows qualities that should flourish superbly with careful aging in the bottle.

Parker : 85 / 100

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 les Grands Chênes gives dusty earth, cigar box and iron ore aromas with a core of cassis, raisin cake and dried mulberries. The palate is medium-bodied and chewy with just enough fruit.
