Pretty, with red currant and plum fruit bouncing along, backed by enticing floral and spice notes. Stays fresh on the finish, with a light mineral accent. Lot of pretty charm.

tasting notes

The 2016 Puy-Blanquet is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. It has plenty of lush red cherry and cranberry fruit on the nose, a smear of vanilla from the new oak that will be subsumed by the time of bottling. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly rustic tannin. Yes, there is a bit of hardness here, but that will soften, and there is plenty of freshness on the grainy finish. Fine
