La Grace Dieu des Prieurs (often mistranslated as "Thanking God by prayer" and actually translates to "The Priors of God's Grace" ) is located at a place called "God's Grace," from which the chateau is named after, between the villages of Saint-Emilion and Pomerol. It was rebuilt in the 19th century on the ruins of an ancient convent and has been owned and managed by winemaker Alain Laubie since 1975, when he took over the company from his father. Chateau La Grace Dieu des Prieurs is a classic wine that is elegant and warm, with delicate aromas. The average age of the vines planted is 40 years which makes for a traditionally refreshing Saint-Emilion.
90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc (Bouchet). Classic bouquet, great color, weight, and richness. Amazing balance and breed, seamless. Layers of fruit and delicate earthy notes, strong palate presence, and long finish. Easy to serve with poultry, red meats, or soft cheeses.
