The Clos du Roy is a family owned 22-hectare wine estate whose wines fully express the richness and the complexity of the greatest Fronsac vines. The Clos du Roy is naturally strong ant prone to ageing, its winemaking process is lead by a constent care for balance and delicacy.

This estate has turned out a vivid purple-hued 2016 that is a blend of 90% Merlot and 5% each of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Its saturated color is followed by a ripe, dense, beautifully concentrated Fronsac that has loads of ripe plum and blackberry fruits, medium to full body, a stacked, layered mid-palate, and ripe yet present tannins that emerge on the mid-palate. It's a beautifully balanced, powerful 2016 that should benefit from 3-5 years of bottle age and keep for a decade or more.

The 2016 Clos du Roy is deep, inky and voluptuous, with plenty of blackberry jam, crème de cassis, chocolate and spice character. Silky tannins, soft contours and voluptuous fruit give this tasty Fronsac plenty of near- and medium-term appeal.
