STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Abandoning the world of finance and Paris, Arnaud de Butler has made his home among the vineyards of Bordeaux. After thorough training in viticulture, he took up the reins of Château Crabitey from his father. The first vintages he produced were revelations, winning one award after another. This Graves takes him up another rung in his well-deserved ascension.
Château Crabitey 2017 presents a dark cherry colour with nice ruby glints. The nose is fresh and reveals a wide range of red fruit flavors along with a mellow and elegant woodiness. The mouth is powerful and round, supported by smooth and subtle tannins. The wine reveals a good length on the palate with fruity and slightly woody tastes. Already perfect to be tasted, the wine can also support an aging period to highlight the quality of the tannins and the woody notes.
