Château Crabitey

AOC Graves Red

Abandoning the world of finance and Paris, Arnaud de Butler has made his home among the vineyards of Bordeaux. After thorough training in viticulture, he took up the reins of Château Crabitey from his father. The first vintages he produced were revelations, winning one award after another. This Graves takes him up another rung in his well-deserved ascension.

    TASTING NOTES

    An elegant wine, deep crimson in colour with a bouquet of berried fruits, prunes and spices. The attack is frank and complex over a well-integrated tannic base, evolving to a powerful mid-palate with extract redolent of black berried fruit. An excellent quality wine with all the typical characteristics of the Graves appellation.

    AGEING

    This vintage can be drunk from 2017 but will be at its best for another 3 to 6 years.

    VINTAGE 2015

    TASTING NOTES

    A profound, brilliant garnet hue with deep purple tints, this wine reveals a powerful bouquet with blackberry, black cherry and spice aromas. The fleshy palate is underpinned by well-integrated, creamy tannins. Expert ageing has conserved all the fruitiness, freshness and minerality of this easy-to-drink but elegant vintage. A perfectly balanced wine rounded off by a long, smooth and fruity finish.
