The concentrationWe've been following this Fronsac estate with interest for quite a few vintages now. This 2017 has a deep core of blackberry and cherry fruit with quite a bit of vanilla and spice. The concentration and intensity are excellent, so not for the faint-hearted, but it's not at all clumsy. There is plenty of flow towards a long and pleasingly fresh finish. The tannins are really quite marked at the moment but, as in previous vintages, this should mellow out to create a really impressive and opulent Fronsac.

The palate is thick with creamy plum and black cherry. There's just a hint of graphite and pepper but it's quickly enveloped by a tide of firm, grippy tannin. This could end up being another impressively rich and decadent Fronsac but it all needs to settle down a bit. This will probably need quite a bit of time before it's at its peak.
