Intense color, high glow ruby. The nose surprises with its blending ripe fruit bouquet: blackberries, raspberries, plums, dried fruits like figs and almonds, subtle notes of roasted pepper that lingers in the aftertaste. The palate is sweet attack, good density, round with a velvety texture, excellent finish that lingers in the memory. Elegant and very complex.
Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2007 Gran Vin is made up of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 20% Malbec aged for 18 months in new French oak. More marked by the oak than the Calcura cuvee, it sports an inviting nose of pain grille, pencil lead, earthy minerals, floral notes, black currant, and blackberry. It is slightly more structured, with 2-3 years of aging potential, good balance, and a lengthy, pure finish. Drink it from 2013 to 2019. (Dec 2011)
Deep intense ruby color with violet flashes, aromas of ripe red fruit jam with hints of walnuts and jasmine. Harmonious and with an unforgettable finish.
