Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Clos du Roy has quite an oaky/cedary nose to begin, soon giving way to vibrant black cherries, warm plums and ripe blackberries scents with touches of tobacco leaf and new leather. Full-bodied, big, rich and concentrated (15% alcohol), the palate exudes black fruit preserves and spicy accents, framed by firm, ripe, rounded tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing on a minty note.

The 2019 Clos du Roy has a well-defined bouquet with ample blackberry, raspberry and floral scents on the nose. Nicely focused with well integrated oak. The palate is medium-bodied, light black pepper notes infusing the crunchy black fruit, with plenty of freshness on the finish. This is a great Fronsac from Clos du Roy.
James Suckling: 92
Lots of blue fruit with slate and lavender character. Medium to full body. Chewy tannins.

The 2019 Clos Du Roy is going to be hidden gem. Offering up a rich yet still fresh bouquet of black raspberries, chocolaty herbs, and licorice, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a ripe, rounded texture, and a great finish. It should keep for a decade.
