2012 La Dauphine, Fronsac (Pre-Arrival)
Very pretty fruit with dark berries and plums. Medium-to-full body, with fine tannins and a fresh finish.
Delivers pure cassis and damson plum aromas, with a sleek feel and a good mix of toast and violet notes on the finish. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. (Web-2013)
Black core, purple rim. Aromatic dark fruit. Vigorous, dense but fresh. Just the right amount of chew at this stage. Youthful harmony and length with a fine mineral thread through the fruit. Don't know the price but imagine this will be (good value). Drink 2017-2025.
