Tasting Notes

Made of 86% Merlot and 14% Cabernet Franc, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Grand Village bursts out of the glass with exuberant black cherries, crushed blueberries and boysenberry notes with hints of redcurrants, pencil lead, Sichuan pepper and spearmint. The medium to full-bodied palate explodes with energy, offering layers of blue and black fruits with loads of spicy sparks and a very plush frame, finishing long and vibrant. Drink: 2021 - 2038.

Score: 93Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate (interim en), November 2018

The 2016 Grand Village has a pretty bouquet of blackberry, bilberry and light iris aromas. The elegant palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and salty black fruit, and almost briny toward the finish, which displays impressive depth. This is a superb Grand Village, one of the best I have tasted. Drink 2021-2033

Score: 90Neal Martin, (Jan 2019), January 2019

The 2016 Grand Village is absolutely delicious. Pliant, supple and generous, the Grand Village is a real standout in 2016. The interplay of mid-palate juiciness and bright acids that are such a signature of the year make for a compelling wine. A closing burst of red fruit and blood orange adds an exclamation point to this gorgeous and expressive wine from the Guinaudeau family. The 2016 is a fabulous wine by any measure. Don't miss it.
