Vintages - Château GRIVIÈRE

Château Grivière 2009

Bright, dark crimson. Sweet and brilliant fruit on the front palate. Quite polished and attractive.

Château Grivière 2008

The 2008 vintage is deep purple in colour.
The aromas of dark-coloured fruit, blackberry and blueberry, married with hints of violet form a complex balance.
Right from the first intense taste, the richness of the tannins enshrouds elegant, complex aromas with a dominant fruity touch, evolving towards more spicy hints.

Château Grivière 2007

The wine seduces at the first glance with its garnet colour edged dark purple.
The deep and complex bouquet confirms this first impression: blackcurrant, gingerbread, toast and cocoa.
The attack is tasty and enjoyable with fleshy tannins, extending to a final note of ripe plum and black cherry.

Château Grivière 2006

Ruby hued with crimson tints.
Fruit dominates the nose – black fruit but some raspberry too. Notes of orange peel and mild spice intertwine with oak fragrances, adding complexity and elegance.
The front of palate is supple and quickly followed by well-integrated, mouth-fillingly velvety tannins.  You find the same rich ripe fruit here again, persisting to a long, slightly spicy finish.

Château Grivière 2005

Beautiful deep ruby red.
The expressive nose of cooked fruit – red plum and cherry – is accompanied by fine notes of dried wood and light tobacco.
The palate delivers what the nose promised, displaying lush roundness with gentle, well-integrated, satin-smooth tannins. All in all, a wine of rare harmony and balance.

Château Grivière 2004

Beautiful ruby colour with redcurrant tints.
Fruity (raspberry and cassis), rich and direct attack on the nose.
The palate is supple and balanced, the finish subtly oaked. Dense but ripe tannins mean that those who prefer younger wines can enjoy it early; those who don't can let it slowly mature in the cellar.

Château Grivière 2003

Densely coloured, between crimson and ruby.
The concentrated bouquet of plum, cherry compote and mild spice is offset by toasty notes.
The fresh, round and chewy palate overlies silky tannins and well-integrated oak. Complex aromas intermingle, while the finish is perfumed by delicious ripe fruit.

Château Grivière 2002

Attractive sustained red with crimson tints.
Pleasant nose of ripe fruits supported by finely toasted oak.
The front of palate is fresh, with well-integrated tannins and expressive fruit. A mature, harmonious vintage, wine at its best.

Château Grivière 2001

Attractive ruby hue.
Jammy fruit and damp earth with notes of orange peel mingling deliciously with the other aromas. Soft and supple, stylish palate, well-integrated. Elegantly perfumed. An epicurean wine – pure pleasure meant for sharing.

Château Grivière 2000

Attractive light ruby red, garnet tints.
The bouquet displays complexity and great finesse (red fruit compote, a hint of chocolate, spices, damp earth).
Rounded, chewy palate, generous and opulent.  A perfectly balanced wine – a delight for the tastebuds.
