For a Médoc, this is an impressively rich wine, which maybe owes a little to the training of the technical director at Château Lynch Bages, well know for its sumptuous wines. Grivière's 2003 is a powerful, smooth, almost velvety wine with great juicy flavors, but, in the proper Bordeaux fashion, finishes dry and firm. Imported by World Wine Source.
