Blackberry, currant and chili with some walnut on the nose and palate. Medium to full body, round and juicy tannins with a creamy texture and a flavorful finish. Just a hint of smoke at the end. Drink after 2024.

The 2018 Clos du Roy is a real pleasure to taste. Rich and flamboyant, the 2018 possesses tremendous depth as well as character. Succulent red fruit, blood orange, mint, spice, leather and new oak all mesh together. Readers will find a Fronsac of real substance and power. The 2018 is impressive. I won't be at all surprised if it ages well.
