Licorice, smoke and wet earth with ripe dark plums on the nose and a blast of black cherry, licorice and dark mocha on the palate work perfectly here. The wine needs only a few years in the bottle before it all comes together. 90-92 Pts

2016 Clos Badon Thunevin  (St. Émilion) 92

With a smoky accent, the licorice, dark red fruits, espresso and earthy nuances come through with ease. The wine is Medium/full bodied with soft tannins. It is forward, so this is perfect to enjoy on the young side. However, if you have just a little patience, there is some tannin to resolve, so yu can give it a few years in the cellar. 92 Points

90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc create the blend. The wine reached 13.5% alcohol and will be aged in 100% new oak. Deep in color with oak, toast, vanilla, jammy blackberry and earth in the nose. The wine is polished, lush and round, but there is a bit too much oak in the supple-textured finish that still needs to come together. 88-90 Pts
