From this small estate, the Guinaudau family (who also own Chateau Lafleur) consistently produces a top-notch wine from its 40-acre vineyard. A blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc, the 2009 is the best Grand Village I have ever tasted. Offering considerable value, it is a fat, plump wine displaying loads of red and black fruits, outstanding purity, and a long finish. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. (Tasted once.)

A new step for Grand Village, changing the way we do things, 2009 is a second step in terms of increase the level of quality, knowledge of the soils, applying the knowledge of Lafleur to Grand Village. A blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc picked between 24th September and 13th October. This has a fine, espresso-scented nose with touches of mulberry and a touch of wild mushroom. Good definition. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, good balanced, simple dark berried fruit laced with truffle and a touch of cooked meat. Moderate length. Fine. Tasted March 2010.

A solid wine, with dark berries and hints of lemon rind. Lemon grassy. Full body, with fine tannins and a delicate fruity finish. Refined. Why wait? From the owners of Pomerol's great Lafleur. But better in 2014. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Plum, peach and berries on the nose, with just a hint of chocolate. Full-bodied, with soft and velvety tannins, plenty of good fruit and fresh acidity. More dense than any vintage I remember from here

Very rich - much richer than usual. Quite sweet. Not very subtle but presumably the best they can do from this terroir. 10,000 bottles ? just one- sixth of production.
