Les Parcelles 2015 - Château Pontey Lamartine, Graves

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

It’s with great pleasure that I bring to you this great Graves, appellation very well known among Bordeaux lovers for its style very close to neighbouring Pessac-Léognan. The balance between Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is perfect and reveals all the best on this 2015 vintage, one of the best Bordeaux ever had.  

 

Terroir

Graves means in French round Pebbles: the fact that the soil gave its name to the appellation is quite uncommon and tells a lot about the importance in Bordeaux of this stones that were brought their by the Garonne River that used to be way larger millenniums ago.

lecepage Grape variety

When it’s nurtured by a lot of sun as it was the case in 2015, Merlot expresses its full aromatic potential. It gives to Pontey-Lamartine flavours of spices and mushrooms, with a hint of clove. On this terroir, Cabernet-Sauvignon is at its best and gives the tannic structure and the power that will elegantly melt through the years.

lemillesime Vintage

In 2015, June and July were particularly warm in Bordeaux. The vines did not have any remaining water to pump in the ground, which created a situation of water stress actually quite good for the vines. Indeed, the plant had do grow deeper roots therefore bringing more nutrients to grape and not too much water to keep a high level of concentration in the grapes. Not far from the perfect vintage.  

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Generation after generation, Dominique Haverlan and his family thrive on Bordeaux’s terroirs. Dominique took his independence from his family in 1988 when he bought Château Gaubert. It worked well, so he continued the adventure in Pessac-Leognan. That also worked well, so he came to Graves to get a terroir almost as good as Pessac but for a much cheaper price so as to produce great wines for decent prices, like Pontey-Lamartine.
