"A sleeper" - Robert Parker. Those were the only remarks made by Robert Parker after reviewing the wine a second time in April of 2007. His earlier remarks were "A sleeper of the vintage, this blend of 69% Merlot and 31% Cabernet Franc possesses superb intensity, sweet, supple tannin, loads of blueberry, raspberry, and black currant fruit, and hints of minerals and earth. This impressively pure, well-endowed Fronsac should drink well for 10-12 years." 88-90 RP - Score was upgraded by Robert Parker to current 90-93 Point score!
