Michel Gracia obviously learned a lot from his close friend Alain Vauthier at Ausone. The 2012 Gracia has an opaque bluish/black color and a gorgeous nose of blueberry liqueur intermixed with blackberry, incense, graphite and spice. Medium-bodied and super-concentrated, with well-integrated acidity, tannin and alcohol, this is a big, rich, profound 2012 to drink over the next two decades. Patience might be warranted to sit on it for 4-5 years prior to pulling corks. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035. Kudos to Michel Gracia! This tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol from a blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon cropped at a low yield of 22 hectoliters per hectare. - Robert Parker

This is so focused and refined with lovely silky tannins and beautiful fruit. Ripe blueberries and wet earth. Full and very pretty on the finish. Better in 2016.

Spicy ink and earth notes complement aromas of dark plum, blueberry liqueur and chocolate on the rich nose. Creamy but bright flavors of black fruits, sweet cocoa and coffee make for a very powerful, muscular style of Saint-Emilion. Finishes smooth and tactile, with lingering vanilla and milk chocolate nuances. Undoubtedly an impressive wine, and in a direct stylistic line from other recent vintages of Gracia. As he owns such a small parcel of vines, Michel Gracia is able to harvest quickly, before the rains can do too much damage. - Ian D'Agata
