Franc Mayne 2009
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.

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.
