Chateau Crabitey Graves Red 2015
|France, Bordeaux, Graves
The 2015 Crabitey is full of personality and character. Gravel, iron, savory herbs and smoke lead into a core of dark fruit in this powerful, distinctive Graves. There is more than enough depth to suggest the 2015 will drink well for at least a handful of years.
The 2015 Château Crabitey has a conservative bouquet, neat 'n tidy, with briary and blackberry scents gradually unfurling in the glass. The palate is smooth on the entry with well-judged acidity, but I find the second half a little over-extracted and it lacks the finesse displayed by the nose. Perhaps this could have been better with more prudence.
