Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

JancisRobinson.com – 15.5

Tasted blind. Had sediment. Deep crimson. Dark, lustrous, blackish crimson. Sweet and very ripe on the nose. Has the vigour and tangy punch of a fine Tuscan red(!). Really rather glamorous. Offers real interest and pleasure even if it’s not the most typical St-Émilion. I liked it at first but then a little bit of greenness revealed itself.  [20/01/2016]

Anticipated maturity: 2019-2030

Vinous – 88

The 2012 Gracia is proprietor Michel Gracia’s top wine. I find it overextracted, angular and short, with rough edges in the tannins that overpower the fruit. The 2012 is 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Jean-Philippe Fort is the winemaker. [Antonio Galloni, 01/01/2016]

Anticipated maturity: 2016-2024

Robert Parker – 95

This estate consistently turns out some of the greatest wines of St.-Emilion. Michel Gracia obviously learned a lot from his close friend Alain Vauthier at Ausone. The 2012 Gracia has an opaque bluish/black color and a gorgeous nose of blueberry liqueur intermixed with blackberry, incense, graphite and spice. Medium-bodied and super-concentrated, with well-integrated acidity, tannin and alcohol, this is a big, rich, profound 2012 to drink over the next two decades. Patience might be warranted to sit on it for 4-5 years prior to pulling corks. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035. Kudos to Michel Gracia! This tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol from a blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon cropped at a low yield of 22 hectoliters per hectare. [Robert M. Parker, Jr., 24/03/2015]

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035
