Vintage 2016 / Wine for the cellar, lots of potential. Nice red fruit, sultry touch. Good concentration. I like Fronsac because it can turn to a little wonder after cellaring.

Cool wine, definitely a masculine take on Merlot. Earthy, with a brambly edge, bitter chocolate and toast. There’s a slight volatility which gives it some lift. Tannins are of the burly sort. Needs air. Comes off as old school, nice cold weather wine

That's pretty nice. Big grip, bit green.

Masculine and physical rather than feminine and sensual. Much better than many who do either too little or too much.

Plummy, with orange peel, cedar, and some tobacco notes. Velvety feel with good acidity and structure. Terrific and great QPR.

Delicious big right bank Boudreaux. Brick to violet color. Nose of black cherry jam, tobacco, mushrooms, and licorice. Big and expressive. Great fruit and soft tannins, slight vanilla, baking spices, and a bit of burnt caramel.

Green. Rather flat. Not very smooth.
