The Gravet-Renaissance vineyard enjoy a priviledge location, situated at the south-facing slope of Saint-Emilion to get a maximum of sunshine. Albert Peuch and Pierre Besse initially acquired the Chateau in 1979, and now Albert's daughter Isabelle Gec Peuch have stepped up to continue the familial tradition. Passionate about wine, rugby (the chateau supports the French Brive Corrèze team) and deeply attached to the terroir, she produces a great Saint Emilion Grand Cru produced predominantly with Merlot grapes. The vines of over 35 years old are all hand harvested, and the Gravet-Renaissance Grand Cru is left to mature in Bordeaux casks for 14 months before it is ready to be bottled!
The nose is deliciously fruity with aromas of dark berries and graphite, inheriting the characteristics of the vineyard's gravel and clay soil. This Grand Cru is full-bodied, with soft and elegant tannins. The finish is well-balanced, long, rich, and intensely fruit-driven.
A delightful match for both red and white meat dishes grilled on the barbecue, or seasoned and cooked with red wine sauce. A glass of this Grand Cru matches full-flavoured cheese perfectly too, like camember, brie, conté and strong cheddar.
