Chateau Chambert "Grand Vin" 2010. The Grand Vin is a 100% Malbec from the oldest Chateau Chambert vineyards and a representation of the three major Chambert soil types. Only grapes with excellent concentration of flavor and tannins are selected to produce this flagship wine. They are fermented using the native, wild yeast that occur naturally on the skins of the grape. Its inimitable signature is defined by the subtle blend of Malbec's power with the refreshing elegance provided by Chambert's limestone soils. This fruit concentration, complex structure and fine acidity prolongs the wine's longevity and ensures that it still retains it's freshness and vibrant fruit, even after decades in bottle. Aged 12 months in new oak (20% max) and 2nd fill French barrels. All Biodynamic and organic. Grape: 100% Malbec, from the oldest vineyards which are over 40 years old. The wines of 2010 are of exceptional quality with complex characters of red fruit, truffle, violets and silky round tannins. Although this vintage produced generous and rich wines, the finesse maintained from the cooler nights and the characteristic low pH of the calcaire soils of Chambert tames their powerful structure. The ripe tannins and dense fruit accompanied by this elegant acidity will ensure that the wines of 2010 have a tremendous potential to age. This rich complex Malbec rivals the best Bordeaux and the 2010 vintage is perhaps the best of the decade. Enjoy with red meat, game and ripe cheeses.
