Château La Grolet

Categories: ,

Jean-Luc Hubert and family make old school, soulful wines in the northern right bank of Bordeaux. Long time biodynamic farming, old vines, traditional cellar work (no added yeasts or enzymes), and subtle use of oak gives this young wine an earthy complexity and depth that is sadly lacking from today’s cookie-cutter, oaky, over-extracted Bordeaux. Certified organic and biodynamic. 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec grown on gravel and silt-based clay terroir. Spontaneous fermentation, aged 12 months in mostly neutral oak; unfined, coarsely filtered.
