Antonio Galloni's Vinous, February 2017
Stunning Cabernet Franc-infused aromatics make a strong first impression in the 2014 Petit Gravet Aîné. Just as remarkable from bottle as it was from barrel, it exudes class and finesse. Cool, bracing notes from the Franc... Stunning Cabernet Franc-infused aromatics make a strong first impression in the 2014 Petit Gravet Aîné. Just as remarkable from bottle as it was from barrel, it exudes class and finesse. Cool, bracing notes from the Franc buttress a core of dark fruit, rose petal, leather and flowers. The creamy, enveloping finish only adds to the wine's considerable appeal. This is fabulous wine from proprietor Catherine Papon-Nouvel.

The 2014 Château Petit Gravet Aîné is also terrific. A blend of 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot, this deeply colored 2014 shows the more reserved, classic style of the 2014 vintage, yet certainly does not come up short... The 2014 Château Petit Gravet Aîné is also terrific. A blend of 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot, this deeply colored 2014 shows the more reserved, classic style of the 2014 vintage, yet certainly does not come up short on depth or concentration. Black raspberries, currants, acacia flowers, toasty oak, and graphite, as well as background minerality, all emerge from this beautiful, medium to full-bodied, layered Saint-Emilion that has a great mid-palate, a ripe, sexy texture, and building tannin. With both terrific complexity and beautiful richness, give bottles 2-3 years and enjoy over the following two decades.

Quite an intense and complex herbal nose that’s very distinctive. This has a very high percentage of cabernet franc and that’s given it quite a serious tannic structure, but there’s also wonderful, bright cassis fruit.

The 2014 Petit-Gravet-Aine is located on the pied de côte in Saint Emilion. It has a gorgeous bouquet with pure dark cherry and blueberry aromas. There is some new oak to be subsumed, but there is plenty of fruit to soak... The 2014 Petit-Gravet-Aine is located on the pied de côte in Saint Emilion. It has a gorgeous bouquet with pure dark cherry and blueberry aromas. There is some new oak to be subsumed, but there is plenty of fruit to soak that up. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine line of acidity, harmonious with a brisk, quite minerally finish. Excellent—this is well worth seeking out. - Neal Martin
