Espresso, black cherries, and chocolate open this forward, round, creamy, fresh, medium-bodied wine. I like the zesty, red berry, and chocolatey finish with its freshness, and ripe, black cherry end note. However, the wine expresses an oaky character that if it better integrates, it will be a better wine. So, let it age a year or two. Drink from 2027-2036. 90-92 Pts.

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

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.
