The 2018 Les Gravières is every bit as impressive as it was from barrel. Graphite, dried herbs, licorice, lavender and purple/black fruits are all laced together. The 2018 has shut down quite a bit after bottling. Today the acids and tannins are quite present. That won't be an issue in time, but it does mean readers need to be patient.

A well oaked, rich, concentrated Saint-Emilion, the 2018 Château Les Gravières offers up a dense purple/plum color as well as powerful notes of blackcurrants, chocolate, graphite, chalky minerality, and earth. It packs full-bodied richness, building tannins, no hard edges, and a great finish. Based on 100% Merlot, this hedonistic dream will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and shine for over a decade.
