The 2016 Clos du Roy has a tightly wound bouquet with abundant black fruit waiting to unfold once in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded but firm tannin, engaging blackberry and bilberry fruit mixed with mineral and a very refined and persistent finish that is the best I have encountered from this Fronsac estate. Bon vin! Trs bon vin! - Neal Martin

Lots of blackberry, blueberry and black-licorice aromas. Full body, chewy tannins and a hazelnut, dark-fruit and walnut aftertaste. A blend of merlot and cabernet franc. Needs two or three years of bottle age to soften. Try in 2022.

Jeb Dunnuck 91
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.
