Domaine Le Roc

La Folle Noire d'Ambat Fronton Negrette 2016

This bottle shows a really bright side today. Close to no funk upon opening : a bright violet, some red and black forest fruits, a bit of red pepper, iron, black pepper too. The palate is well balanced with a strong acid backbone and black and red forest fruits on the sides. A bit of tannins in the rear for a kick before a closing with fruits and some nice bitterness. The finish gives an impression of climbing back on the palate, this is quite a physical experience, it litteraly comes back up.

Edit : it gets 0,1 point more because I haven't tasted it in this state and form for a very long time. Gotta love it!

Thank you @Peter van den Besselaar this one is dear to me because I'm from toulouse originally and we go buy it directly from the Ribes brothers. It travelled 2000 km in the trunk of my parents' car before being opened here in Warsaw.

Domaine Roumagnac

Authentique Fronton

Great rustic red, which is based on a blend of Negrette and other more common varieties in the SW. 2016 vintages is very approachable but unlikely to improve much.
