Château Tonnelle de Grillet 2016
A beautiful red hue with deep purple tints, this presents a harmonious blend of floral notes and red-berry aromas with a hint of spice. The palate is seductively fresh and creamy, underpinned by silky tannins. Excellent expression of this appellation’s charm & character; best imbibed within the next five years.
We have yet to find a more enjoyable claret for the money!
This estate extends over more than 39 hectares on the right bank of the Garonne in the Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux appellation. It has been owned by the same family through three generations. Both the father and grandfather of Patrice Glémet contributed to making the estate what it is today, planting and restructuring the vineyard. Patrice Glémet took over the family business in 1990, since when he has devoted all his efforts to rediscovering this terroir. State-of-the-art equipment and a modern approach to winemaking enable him to produce meticulously crafted, elegant wines.
