JEB DUNNUCK: "The 2022 Château Gracia showed beautifully, with a vivid ruby/purple hue as well as a great notes of ripe blue fruits, spring flowers, violets, and chalky minerality. A rough blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, it's medium to full-bodied, has plenty of richness and power, and offers an overriding sense of purity and elegance. It's gorgeous wine from Michel Gracia's tiny 1.83-hectare vineyard."
JAMES SUCKLING: "A solid core of fruit with a freshness and brightness. Medium body. Creamy fine tannins. Serious finish."
LISA PERROTTI-BROWN: „The 2022 Gracia is composed of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep garnet-purple in color, it rocks up with eager-to-please notes of baked black plums, juicy blackberries, and fragrant earth, plus wafts of lavender and tilled soil. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers spicy black fruit preserves with a plush texture and great length."
THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Fresh, silky, elegant, ripe, soft, and fruity. The wine is forward, vibrant, and supple with refined, red pit fruits in the finish. The wine is produced from blending 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink from 2025-2040."
WEINWISSER: "Delikates, leicht kompottartiges Bouquet, Himbeermark, rote Kirschkonfitüre, betörende Veilchen und Estragon. Am straffen sehnigen Gaumen mit seidiger Textur, körniger Extraktfülle und engmaschigem Tanninkorsett. Im gebündelten Finale eine volle Ladung Graphit, Wacholder und mürbe Adstringenz. 2029 – 2045."
