Juicy and meaty with a medium body and chalky texture. Very fine and polished tannins. Compact and focused.

I always love this cuvée, and their 2022 Clos Du Roy (90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc) has a subtle modern vibe as well as pure black raspberry and darker cherry fruits, medium to full body, beautiful tannins, and complex spice, new oak, and floral aromatics. It's going to benefit from just a few years of bottle age, but it should easily be an outstanding wine. I'd be happy to drink a bottle.
