Macerated violets, cherry butter, crisp dead leaves, seaside walks on gray mornings...another quality Fronsac.

19 year old Bordeaux from a 'lesser' commune that was just singing. About 70% Merlot. We drank it with grilled filet and my wife looked at me and said 'we ARE going to drink this whole bottle."😁 Which we did.

Super elegant and powerful at the same time. It has lovely violet aromas, red and black berries, smooth and powerful tannins and a full body. Lovely at 6 years of age, would love to taste with 10-12 years of age... A bargain too.

Great daily drinker! Round and soft all at the same time - nice sweet black cherry on the nose with a bit of limestone coming through too. Blueberry, graphite, and more sweet black cherry on the palate.. Nice wine for the money.

Magnum given to me by the importer when I worked at whole foods in the late 90's

Lots of grippy tannin and structure. Blueberries, some blackberries on the nose. Graphite. Not the most complex wine and the finish is short and chalky.

This wine is huge. Not sure when the tannin and oak are going to resolve. I find delectables average price pretty hard to believe based upon what I paid at wholesale
