Chateau Haut-Gravet Grand Chemin 2011 AOC Saint-Emilion Grand Cru
70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
 
Château Haut Gravet is the jewel of the Aubert family vineyards. For over 20 years, Alain and his wife Bernadette have selected from among Haut Gravet’s 30 acres the best vines and applied traditional methods, tried and true to the history of Grand Cru wine, along with more modern methods, resulting in a wine which has evolved with time and is always progressing. Grand Chemin is a 5-acre parcel of ancient vines over 40 years old within the Haut Gravet vineyard. It is ideally located at the foot of the Saint-Émilion hill on mainly ancient gravel (allows deep rooting for a full terroir expression) along with clay-limestone soils (whose mineral richness leads to a fully developed aromatic profile). The final wine is fresh, elegant and well-balanced, with classic structure, a firm grip and a mineral undercurrent that brings you back for another taste…
 
Producer Alain Aubert is 6’3” tall, with impressive hands and a great smile on his face. “What do you know about wine?” he’ll ask. If you answer “Not much,” he’ll smile and say “Good, we will understand each other.” Then for the next few hours he’ll tell you all about the cultivation of grapes on the right piece of land. Treat them well, he says, and the harvest will be the result of the expression of each variety in balance with its respective terroir.

The Alain Aubert vineyards are an authentic family wine estate, run by Alain and his wife Bernadette with the help of their three daughters and one of their sons-in-law. Amélie Aubert is specialized in vine growing and wine making, and is a certified oenologist. I recently called her to talk about her winemaking philosophy. “The soils,” she began, and I could practically hear her smile, “we’ve been working the soils, aerating the soils, really caring for them, to provide the vines with maximum nourishment.” Healthy grapes are the key to success, she explained. “We are farmers above all, and with minimal intervention, we want to produce the best quality grapes.” And you can taste it in the final result: wonderful fruity aromas envelop your senses in this delightful wine.

About Saint-Emilion
Saint-Emilion is an A.O.C. in the Bordeaux wine region, located on the right bank of the Dordogne River. This beautiful property is located at the foot of the Saint Emilion slopes. This soil is distinguished not only by its quality but also by its history. The village of Saint Emilion, which overlooks the vines of Chateau Haut-Gravet, is classified as a world UNESCO heritage site and is home to a number of architectural masterpieces dating from the Middle Ages. But it is nevertheless the exceptional quality of the wines produced around its walls that has made Saint Emilion world famous. Chateau Haut-Gravet, like the other great properties in this area, is at the same time the beneficiary and the guardian of this historical inheritance. To open a bottle of Chateau Haut-Gravet means that one’s guests are not only offered an exceptional wine, but are also invited to share a part of the universe marked by a thousand-year tradition.
