Tasting Notes
Alain Thiénot bought Ricaud back in 1980 but since bought the famous old Bordeaux firm of Dourthe and has unleasehed their wine making team on his property, this is the result. Unlike the Merlot based Ch Ricaud the Grand Vin is 75% Cabernet, 20% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot aged in100% new oak. A very attractive plummy dark berries and tobacco and herbs on the nose and an attractive graphite and ripe dark fruits with soft tannins and nice oak.
