Château La Grave à Pomerol 2022

£247.50

Case of 6

17.5

30/06/2023

Château La Grave Pomerol With perhaps the finest light gravel soil in Pomerol, this historic vineyard was acquired by Christian Moueix in 1971. Intriguingly, that same gravelly thread passes through Cheval Blanc and Figeac. If Château Lagrange was redolent of summer pudding on the nose then La Grave’s perfume was created by a masterchef of the dish… Here the fruit is of deepest ruby red, mouth-watering (can a nose be more mouth-watering? Well, yes.) The palate offers that hallmark silken, supple density but more weighty, almost meaty in 2022 with an extracted undertow that is deeply serious. This is a lovely La Grave, a worthy partner to that most glorious trio of 2018, 2019, 2020. Exclusive to Corney & Barrow in the UK

30/06/2023

We originally offered this last year as a substitute for Barrail du Blanc and it was so good again in 2022 that we had to buy it. Part of the Château Laroque estate and immediate neighbour to the compelling Château Rocheyron of Peter Sisseck, this sits on clay-limestone soil that appears to have shrugged off the torrid conditions of the growing season. Here the nose is more high-flown, with piercingly fresh red fruit. The palate is almost liquorous in its sweetness, with an elegant succulence, a dark structure and fine length. The antithesis to Barrail du Blanc in 2022, the perfect foil indeed. Cracking value as well.

Château Rocheyron 2022

Case of 6

30/06/2023

Peter Sisseck’s Rocheyron is a blend of 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc in 2022. Dark cherry fruit on the nose, with plum and blackberry. Great purity of aroma. The palate is both rich and cool, the silky dark berry fruit of the medium-full body offset by driving limestone tension and nerviness. We tasted the grape varieties separately before tasting the final blend. Peter described the 100% Cabernet Franc sample as “annoyingly good” – by which I assume he meant he wish he had more! (It was rich and dense, with quite brilliant freshness.) The yield was exactly where Peter wanted it, at 32hl/ha. Fermented at 25-27°C (as a point of interest, Pingus is fermented 23-25°C). The wine then spent 30 days in concrete vats, before being transferred to oak barrels for 14 months of elevage in 35% new oak barrels, followed by 2-3 months in cement vats. 14.5% abv. The equivalent of 21,000 bottles has been produced.

75% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc. A darkly berried nose of lifted bitter cherry and liquorice.
