From the d'Arfeuille family, this is a small property with just 8ha of clay limestone terroir. This blend of 85% Merlot, and 15% Cabernet Franc is elegant with a good lift on finish. Tannins still need to soften but this is a dense and well weighted for the vintage, and feels like a classical Fronsac.
This rich wine is full of berry fruits that are smoothed out by wood aging. It is still young with a structure of tannins that gives a dry edge. That will soften to reveal the fruitness of the merlot/cabernet franc blend with its fresh aftertaste.
