The 2016 'Grand Chemin' is absolutely fantastic in this vintage. This blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon instantly begins with wonderful characteristics of dark cherries and currents, woven together with tobacco, spices, charcoal, and toast which all come together to form the inviting aromatics. On the palate this is medium-full bodied and beautifully structured with nicely polished tannins and a gorgeous texture. It possesses a ripe core that is laced with flavors of ripe dark berries, tobacco and a mineral character that persists through the long, elegant finish. The 2016 is showing excellent today, however it also has the potential to age well for more than a decade. This is the certainly the most compelling wine I have tasted to date from Haut Gravet.
