Was a tough choice – I picked Gravelotte-St Privat rather than Sedan as the outcome at Sedan was kind of decided earlier

All armies, no matter how good, can have their "Black Day." The French have had their share. Indeed, you can make a case for many French wars beginning with strings of victories before ending in defeat. So, to be a "Black Day" doesn't mean eventual defeat but a significant military disaster.
