A luscious, dark-fruited red with a plush, supple texture and full-bodied weight. Attractive aromas and flavours of wild blackberry, cassis and black licorice. Highly recommended.

This wine won a Gold Medal at the 2012 Concours Général Agricole in Paris. Clos du Roy’s wine, which is also Merlot-based, is (like Puygueraud) exactly the opposite of the flaccid fruitiness that characterizes a lot of affordable New World Merlot. It’s taut and focused, full of bright blackberry fruit supported by fine tannins. We tasted [winemaker Philippe] Hermouet’s 2009 and 2010 vintages ... the ’10 more powerful and licorice-edged.
