Chateau Lehoul Graves rouge 2012
Chateau Léhoul is a small family domaine in Graves, just south of the city of Bordeaux on the region’s Left Bank. Their humble wines are well made and well priced, and, as it turns out, age beautifully. This isn’t 2012 Haut Brion, but it’s a fraction of the price and was delicious with our burgers – don’t overthink it and it won’t let you down.
The 2012 shows lovely dark fruits, with notes of dried violets, tobacco, and plum jam. The mouth is velvety and smooth but not at all dry, with its inky tannins and softened fruit laid over a beautiful patina of texture. Give this 20 minutes in a carafe to wake up from its decade of slumber, and admire the power of patience.
