2020 Château de Francs Infinity  (Francs Côtes de Bordeaux) 92

Deeply colored, the wine is juicy, with a strong essence of crushed rocks and stones, dark red plums, blackberry, savory herbs and smoke. The mineral-driven finish is fresh, fruity and best of all stony, with a cool oceanic character. 91-93 Pts

Medium/full bodied, and loaded with flowers, rocks, red fruit, smoke and thyme, there is a purity and freshness to the fruit that vie for attention on your palate. This will be even better with 3-5 years of age, as clearly, there is more here that is just below the surface. 92 Points

2008 Château de Francs Les Cerisiers  (Bordeaux Côtes de Francs) 89

08 De Francs les Cerisiers (Cotes de Francs). This producer, located outside of St. Emilion, was a pleasant discovery. Its terroir is similar to that of La Fleur de Bouard. The deep color and ripe black raspberry filled aromatics might easily make you think this wine is a small Pomerol. Medium bodied and filled with soft black cherry and plum flavors. Here is a wine to look for in the high quality, low price category. 88-91 89 Points
