    November 22, 2019 - Decanted 1,5h. Mellow dark fruit, dusty cocoa medium minus tannins. Nice balance. Not a lot of developed notes, not very complex. I was afraid it would be over the hill but drinking well now.

    November 20, 2019 - Nice berry fruit flavors with proper acidity and well resolved tannins.
    Modest finish. Youthful but not overbearing. Not complex yet very pleasing.

    February 25, 2019 - Still quite youthful and primary but the tannins have softened, making this very easy to drink.

    February 9, 2019 - From a 375ml bottle. It has been a couple of years since I tried this. It still has good harmony for the vintage. Doesn't appear to be past prime. Beautiful color, enticing nose with an elegant finish. It is great for the QPR. 14% alcohol. To me Fronsacs are a great value for those who enjoy robust but elegant French wines. 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

    December 25, 2018 - This is a very nice Fronsac. Still had plenty of bones...mellow tannins, long finish. Short decant (lots of sediment). We enjoyed very much as part of Christmas Eve wine selections.
