Robust and full of life. Many years to go on this one.

For this week's #MerlotThursday here is a very enjoyable Right Bank Bordeaux.

Showing black fruits with earth, wet leaves, cherries, black currants, oak, licorice, spices, chocolates and tobacco.

Full bodied and bold with medium plus acidity and long legs. Already showing elegance.

Long finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries.

Well balanced with great complexity and a great mouthfeel.

Still young and needs 5 years in the bottle to mature, but already drinking very nicely now. This is a good one for long term aging.

Robert Parker 93 points. Wine Spectator 94 points.

A very nice wine and totally my style. Enjoyable by itself or with food.

A blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. aged in 60% New French oak barrels for 20 months.

14% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$80.

17/20 (92/100) Насыщенный аромат чернослива, засахаренной вишни, травяного ликера, кофе и ванили. Тельное с умеренной кислотностью и интенсивными танинами. Чернослив, сушеные яблоки и кофе во вкусе. Плотное, дубовое бордо. Отлично!

Amazing blend in an amazing vintage. Love that it is 60% Merlot, 30% Cab Franc, and 10% Cab Sav. Love the right bank, especially these small producers in St. Emilion. Drinking fabulously right now but probably not peak.

Nice nose. Made the mistake of poring immediately after opening. With time opened up nicely. Possibly consumed a little young.
