The 2010 Chateau De Portets brings layers of pure black fruit, toasted oak, cranberry, bell pepper, exotic spices and ground coffee. It’s really showing well at this stage, but should be cellared for another 2-3 years. (Best 2015-2023) - July, 2013 (MD)
 
 
By Serge Dore Selections
Chateau de Portets 2010 AOC Graves
55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon
 
On a rich and gravelly soil covered with round pebbles (the so-called graves) Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon vines plunge their roots deep into the sandy clay subsoil of AOC Graves, the only French appellation to carry the same name as its terroir. Portets is the oldest vineyard of Graves, its first vines planted by the Romans over 2000 years ago...The red wine produced here is appreciated for its body, beautiful ruby color and subtle aroma profile. Cabernet contributes deep aromas and tannic structure, while Merlot brings more subtle aromas of fresh red fruits, hints of spices and a supple elegance. The youngest child of the Théron family (owners since 1956), Marie-Hélène Yung-Théron is the first woman to produce wine at the château. After the sale of Château Lafon in Listrac (the second family property) in 2011, she concentrated her efforts on reviving Château de Portets. She worked and learned the trade at Château Lafon: Marie-Hélène says “my passion for wine came from Lafon but my heart is in Portets.” Portets is now her priority; she takes great care to never overlook the smallest details when it comes to the production of an excellent wine, and major restructuring efforts since 1998 show her intention to elevate Château de Portets to the highest level of the Graves appellation.
 
Historical Note
Napoleon visited the Château upon returning from Spain, July 31st 1808. A bronze plaque in the courtyard commemorates his passage.
