A powerful and concentrated red wine from the Médoc

A prestigious property owned by Bernard Magrez since 1998, Château Les Grands Chênes is one of the key references of Bordeauxs Left Bank. With this new vintage, the Château Les Grands Chênes 2017 continues to express the estate’s unique style, also expressing the typical characteristics of wines form the Médoc.

Extending over a vineyard of 34 hectares of vines aged 40 years on average, Château les Grands Chênes enjoys a terroir closely linked to the river, as the soils are composed of Garonne gravel.

With this new vintage made by consultant oenologist Michel Rolland, the Château Les Grands Chênes 2017 demonstrates the consistent style of the estate with a very qualitative profile, despite a difficult vintage. The blend is dominated by Merlot (60%), complemented by the other favorite red grape variety of the Médoc, Cabernet Sauvignon (40%).

With a very fruit-forward profile and highly concentrated aromatic palette, the Château Les Grands Chênes 2017 already shows a beautiful expression. On the palate, it displays a nice texture, dense and well balanced. This Médoc wine shows qualities that should flourish superbly with careful ageing in the bottle.

Parker : 85 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 les Grands Chênes gives dusty earth, cigar box and iron ore aromas with a core of cassis, raisin cake and dried mulberries. The palate is medium-bodied and chewy with just enough fruit.
