Tasting Notes

You need look no further than Graves for a screamingly good example of ready-to-drink Bordeaux. The Château Trébiac property sits on a gravel plateau at Portets. Over the past several years, the winery and vinification have been upgraded and the vines (averaging almost 30 years old) have seen some new care regimen and rehabilitation as well. Informed by 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, the tones of cassis and tobacco exude from this value-driven Bordeaux, which drinks like a bottle at twice the price.

    After thirty years in the retail business, I think one of the aspects that still keeps me motivated is finding excellent quality wine, as with the 2014 Trébiac, in this price range. I have always found it easy, if not boring, to sell the expensive 'stuff' that has received a b'zillion points from the many different wine writers, but finding wine as this and selling it in quantity to our customers continues to excite me. This Gem is medium-deep ruby in color, offers a lovely nose of black cherry to cedary to earthy tones whcih carries over nicely to a soft, round, drinkable Bordeaux with a silky finish. Rusty has demanded that I bring home several cases of this Gem for our near-term consumption. GREAT VALUE!!!

    This is a classic 2014 wine with its high-toned fruit. It might surprise some for its blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and it is delicious. A nose with fruit notes of cherry, plums and a touch of cola, along with an earthiness that is so typical of the best Graves wines. The palate shows its fruit in all its juiciness, but it doesn’t end there: spices and even a surprising note of salty minerality make sure this wine will be perfectly at ease at the table. I would age it for a couple more years, or a put it through a quick passage in the decanter if you are impatient.

    A lot of wine for $12.99. The 2014s are hot sellers in Bordeaux as the prices are very good. This mineral driven wine has plenty of stuffing. Decant it one hour at least and enjoy. Red berry aromas and flavor with earthiness on the palate. Great value!
