Merlot/Cabernet Franc * 75cl * 13% ABV * Bordeaux, France
I was blown away by the level of dark, mineral and graphite aromas on the nose followed by the huge concentration of brambly dark fruit (blueberry/sloe) on the palate. I don't think a pallet of this will last long on our shelves when it comes of drinking age. Ranked fifth in Matthew Jukes' best value buys of Bordeaux 2016. Drinking: 2022-2027+
