JS 98
jamessuckling.com, April 2017
(JS97-98 points) A rich and chewy red with lots of fruit and tannins. Full-bodied, big and rich. Yet this remains polished and balanced. Exciting fruit character throughout. About one third is made in terracotta jars.

(AG90-93 points) The 2016 Magrez-Fombrauge, 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, is a dark, sumptuous wine. Two-thirds of the juice is vinified in barrel, which gives the wine its textural depth and overall richness. Black stone fruit, bittersweet chocolate, spice, mocha, leather and licorice build into the huge finish. The 2016 is not especially subtle, but it is impeccably balanced within its style.
