Community Tasting Notes 8

    March 4, 2019 - Prior bottle was nearly 16 months ago and this wine has begun to evolve as I'd hoped. Still a bit tannic and closed when first opened, it really started to show well after about two hours open and all of these notes and from that point on.

    Black cherry, earth and vanilla notes on the nose. Between medium and full bodied with the same mix of black cherry and blackberry upfront, but this time, showed a touch more rounded and accessible, especially through the middle. Felt like there was a more complete bridge to the backside as well showing tart blackfruit and minerals. Still has a good amount of tannin, but overall, noticeably better integrated than previously. In general, I would say that the flavor profile is pretty much the same with only minor additions to complexity. But in terms of integration and balance, the wine has clearly evolved positively. I will probably try my next bottle in early 2020 and hope that this trend continues.

    November 12, 2017 - Blackberry and an earthy oakiness on the nose. Opened about an hour ahead of time and while it showed good fruit initially, seemed to fall a bit out of balance the longer it was open. Between medium and full bodied (14.5%) with blackberry and black cherry upfront. There's good fruit present through the mid-body, but for now, it's masked by drying, intrusive tannins (even after three hours open). Towards the finish, it starts to come together nicely with a mix of blackfruit and mineral that really works well. Once the tannins settle down, this could become quite enjoyable, especially for an impressive value petite Bordeaux. I'll try my next bottle in 12-18 months and reassess.

    December 20, 2015 - Great value for the price. Nice dusty dark fruits, mushrooms, pencil shavings. The right amount of dank with confident tannins.

    September 12, 2015 - This is a delightful little Fronsac from Patrick Leon who spent time at Mouton Rothschild & now works with Peter Sichel. A great bargain in moderately priced Bordeaux. Merlot & Cabernet Franc.
