Vignobles Hermouet, Clos du Roy 2018, Fronsac
Vignobles Hermouet in Bordeaux produce this 2018 Clos du Roy Merlot Red wine has a tightly wound bouquet with abundant black fruit waiting to unfold once in the bottle. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded but firm tannin, engaging blackberry and bilberry fruit mixed with minerals and a very refined and persistent finish that is the best I have encountered from this Fronsac estate. Bon vin! Très bon vin!
