Wine Expert Note:

Churchill's Grafite is an exquisite wine that showcases the best of Portuguese winemaking. On the nose, Churchill's Grafite offers enticing aromas of ripe blackberries, dark cherries, and plums, accompanied by hints of tobacco and spice. The flavors of black fruits are complemented by notes of vanilla, cedar, and a touch of earthiness, adding depth and complexity to the wine. The well-integrated tannins provide structure and balance, while the vibrant acidity contributes to a long and elegant finish. Churchill's Grafite is a wine that can be enjoyed now, but it also has the potential to age gracefully. Its impressive structure and depth make it a perfect companion for hearty dishes such as roasted meats, game, or aged cheeses. Read more

Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.

Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

Xavier Vignon, the responsible oenologist, refers to the 'Magic of Terroirs' as the foundation for this exceptional Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Only rigorously hand-selected grapes from countless ancient plots are considered for this luxurious wine. After careful, separate fermentation of all grape varieties and the blending process, the wine matures for over 15 months, with a quarter in new barrels, wooden casks, demi-muids, and concrete tanks. This represents the pinnacle of winemaking artistry, resulting in an immensely dense, truly magnificent, and rightfully top-rated Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
