Gracia is a true Garage wine! ( 車庫酒 ) It is produced inside the village of St. Emilion in a small space, located on a tiny back alley that is next to a working garage. The estate is owned by Owned by Michel Gracia. Michel Gracia is an interesting man, who knows everyone and everything about St. Emilion. In part, that is because he is also a contractor and stone mason that has worked for Cheval Blanc, Petrus and several other well known properties in the region.

The amount of effort required to produce this small wine is extensive. Chateau Gracia sees a 28 to 30-day maceration period. Vinification takes place in a combination of small, temperature controlled, stainless steel vats and Taransaud oak tanks. Yields are always low. On average, they are often only 25 hectoliters per hectare and at times, they are even lower!

The Wine Advocate(葡萄酒倡導者)》雜誌的創始人 Robert Parker(羅伯特.帕克)宣布未來五年他將處於「半退休」狀態,然而他卻比以往更傾註波爾多名莊酒的品鑒。 —- 超級量小,精美的超級好酒莊….很難買到,標準波爾多車庫酒

The small, 25.84 hectare St. Emilion vineyard of Gracia is 75% Merlot , 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon . The terroir is clay and limestone soils. The vines are old, averaging close to 40 years of age (總面積為25.84公頃.,扣除不能種植面積,全部不超過5公頃..每公頃大約最多釀出2,000~2,200公升的葡萄酒,.可說是波爾多中最小之一….)

44Robert Parker Tasting Notes: This estate consistently turns out some of the greatest wines of St.-Emilion. 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 2 hectoliters per hectare.

呈墨紫色,帶有濃郁的利口酒、藍莓、黑覆盆子和黑醋栗的風味, 酒體豐滿,單寧厚重,濃郁度高,口感豐潤,需要 7 到 10 年的窖藏時間,之後至少可以保存 30 年
