Château La Grolet Origines
Grapes: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
Château La Grolet is the Cotes de Bourg vineyard of Peybonhomme-Les-Tours, a pioneering natural Bordeaux estate run by the Hubert family in the village of Cars near Blaye since 1895. Now in its sixth generation, it has been organic and biodynamic since 2000 with a strong focus on maintaining a healthy, vibrant ecosystem that encompasses flora, fauna and animal life.
Origines is Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grown in the sandy gravel soil of the Cotes de Bourg. Ripe red and black fruit with touches of cocoa, mint and tobacco spice. Great now but worth laying down.
