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.

    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.

    Château Crabitey 2016 presents a dark cherry colour with nice ruby glints. The nose is fresh and reveals a wide range of red fruit flavors along with a mellow and elegant woodiness. The mouth is powerful and round, supported by smooth and subtle tannins. The wine reveals a good length on the palate with fruity and slightly woody tastes. Already perfect to be tasted, the wine can also support an aging period to highlight the quality of the tannins and the woody notes.
