2020 Amphora Wine Clavis Orea  (Médoc) 90

Savory red fruits with a touch of cedar and tobacco accompany the red berries and cassis. Medium-bodied, fresh, energetic and sweet with a nice purity to the red pit fruits on the palate and in the finish. Give this a few years in the cellar and if it fills out, it will be a better wine. 89-91 Pts

2019 Amphora Wine Clavis Orea  (Médoc) 90

The debut vintage for Franck Jugelmann in the Left Bank produced a meaty, earthy, spicy and smoky wine, with thyme, vanilla, red fruits and green leafy notes in the nose. Medium-bodied, bright, fresh, slightly crisp and with an herbal note in the red berry finish, the wine is soft and round in texture, with a piquant bite of berries in the leafy finish. 89-91 Pts

Dark on the nose and palate, the wine is lush, rich, ripe, fruity, fleshy and polished, with a big blast of opulent, sweet fruits on the palate and in the hedonistic finish. Give this a few years of age, allowing it to become an even better wine. 93 Points
