The 2018 Clos du Roy is made up of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Deep garnet-purple colored, it delivers profound baked plums, boysenberry and cassis notes with touches of chocolate box, underbrush and truffles. Medium to full-bodied and packed with generous black fruits, it has a velvety texture and lively line, finishing savory.
91-93 points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate (Issue # Interim - Apr 2019)
Very solid Fronsac with currant, chocolate and walnut character. Medium body. Firm tannins.
