Tasting Notes

Spicy white peach bouquet with a wonderful density on the palate and a long mineral finish. Benoît uses a little more oak on this to frame the extra muscle of the Valmur. A wine to be patient with- Benoît compares this to his 2002 which is still awaiting the corkscrew. Drink 2014-2020+.

Reviews & Scores

Pale, bright yellow. Steely aromas of underripe pineapple, white peach and oyster shell. Dense, tactile and distinctly sappy, showing much less inner-mouth sweetness but more precision than the Grenouilles. This also aged in 50% oak but is much less marked by the wood. The bright lime and mineral flavors are complemented by a smoky, flinty silex quality. A very firmly built wine and the longest of these 2008s, with lovely energy and lift to its finishing flavors of lime and crushed stone. - 91-94 points

Hiding behind the gorgeous sweet fruit, fragrant notes of cordial, cocoa and liquorice emerge with time in the glass. Laser-beam precision is supported by the finest, grippiest tannins imaginable. Those tannins carry the beautifully concentrated fruit to a long, long finish. Effortless and perfectly...

"Brooding yet sensuous, Gravelly Meadow reveals earthy, savoury, meaty notes the nose, along with blackcurrants, blueberries and mulberries. There are subtle hints of herbs, tobacco and cedarwood. Once again, the tannic structure is impeccable and perfectly integrated. This says more about the superb quality of the fruit than it does about the 100% new oak. Gravelly Meadow is Diamond Creek’s...
