Very floral with hot stones and spearmint undertones. Full-bodied, silky and juicy with orange peel and spices. Very intense young wine. Better in 2020 but already fascinating to taste. Fantastic wine from here.

Therefore, I did not score it and crossed my fingers. Well, I am glad I ignored those misfiring bottles, because it has blossomed into a fine Fronsac. It offers attractive blackberry, wild strawberry, dried apricot and crushed violets scents on the nose that seem to build in intensity but wisely never go over the top. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, plenty of red cherry and crushed strawberry fruit; lovely balance with a supple and detailed finish that has superb mineralité. Check out this great Fronsac wine. It's a little gem. - Neal Martin collapse
