2016 Bordeaux Fronsac, Clos du Roy Fronsac
Accolades are not just handed out. Known as the ‘great wine’ of the property the 2016 Clos du Roy brazenly flaunts it’s earthy, briary-scented flavours and it’s strong definition while offering a finish of blackberry and bilberry with a touch of sea salt. I’d say this accolade is more than earned.
During the past thirty years the Vignobles Hermouet's goal has been to keep evolving, keep making tremendous wines and keep on navigating each grape’s journey from the vine to the glass. Whether at Clos du Roy in the town of Saillans or at Château Roc Meynard in the neighboring town of Villegouge, by sourcing the best rootstocks and favouring high densities to get the most out of the soil Vignobles Hermouet produce high quality wines that continue to make a stir.
