Tasting Notes

Tasted at the Union de Grand Cru in London. The Franc-Mayne has a sensual, chocolate tinged nose that is showing just a little too much oak at the moment, although there is sufficient fruit to absorb that with time. The palate is full-bodied with rounded, very pure tannins and a sorbet like freshness towards the delineated finish. Joyful! Tasted October 2011.

Score: 92Neal Martin,, January 2012

Layers of ripe, cedary black currant and black cherry fruit are endearing and substantial in this opulent, medium to full-bodied wine, which displays notes of underbrush and roasted herbs that give the wine a Provencal nuance to its overall St.-Emilion personality. Already forward and drinkable, this wine should continue to drink nicely for up to 15 or more years.
