Blackberry jam, chocolate, cloves, spice and new leather are all fused together, but it is the wine's textural depth and impeccable balance that make it absolutely irresistible. This is an especially overt, racy style. What a joyous wine this is. -- Antonio Galloni

This vintage is a good example of why, with its silky texture, black fruits and confident, refined frame evident right from the off. The difference between this and the 2017 is the depth and width to the fruit here, but it will inevitably take longer to come around.

Full-bodied and loaded with sweet, earthy, dark plums, tobacco leaf, cocoa and smoke, the wine is round, lush and will be perfect for youthful, or near term drinking, while waiting for its brig brother to mature.The wine was produced from blending 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot. 92 Points Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/search-wine-tasting-notes/?szSearch=2016%20Rocquencourt
