2020 Clos Junet  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 92

Violets, toasty oak, spice and ripe dark plums come to the surface in the nose. Medium-bodied, supple and juicy with a tinge of salty tannins and soft fruits in the fresh, red berry finish. This is quite nice. You can enjoy this on release, or age it for more complexity. 91-93 Pts

2019 Clos Junet  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 88

Medium-bodied with an oaky note on the nose and mouth, the wine is fruity and fresh, with a bright, red berry and green olive finish. This should be a bit better in a few years when the oak integrates. 87-89 Pts

2018 Clos Junet  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 90

Thyme, smoke, underbrush, espresso and red fruits open the nose of this medium-bodied, soft, juicy, fresh wine, finishing with a jolt of licorice, dark cocoa, black cherry and plum. This is showing better in bottle than in barrel. You can enjoy this on release, or age it for more complexity. 90 Points

2015 Clos Junet  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 89

Medium/full bodied, polished, soft textured and fruity, there is a nice blend of oak, licorice and black cherry here, with black raspberry notes in the finish. This is a nice little discovery for me. The wine was produced using a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. - 88-90 Pts
