Description

Wine Advocate #199 Feb 2012 Robert Parker 93 This property has made so many fine efforts lately that it is difficult to say the 2009 is better than their 2005. However, the 2009 is a charming, sexy, dense ruby/purple-colored offering displaying lots of ripe Merlot fruit intermixed with hints of charcoal, black raspberries, black currants, lead pencil shavings and truffles. This full-bodied, pure, nicely textured and layered Fronsac is a sleeper of the vintage that considerably over-performs for its modest price. Drink it over the next 15+ years. This is an obvious great value! Robert Parker 93 Score: 90 Country: France Region: Bordeaux Issue: May 31, 2012 Solid, with a nice, pure beam of cassis and blackberry fruit subtly laced with licorice snap and tobacco notes. The polished finish has an iron accent in reserve. Should be a solid midterm ager. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2028. 7,500 cases made. JM
