Lovely Merlot-dominant (90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc) wine from the house of Mouiex.
Fresh with beautifully balanced fruit, this medium-bodied wine offers great bang for your bucks.
It is soft, lively with plenty of flavours throughout and a refreshing finish.
Robert Parker Wine Advocate 88 Points
Blended of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the medium garnet-purple colored 2016 Puy-Blanquet delivers black cherries, warm redcurrants and black plum preserves on the nose with wafts of stewed tea, tobacco and bay leaves. Medium-bodied, the palate has a pleasant chewiness to the texture and plenty of earth-laced red and black fruits, finishing on a peppery note.
90 points Wine Spectator
‘Pure and focused, with damson plum, red currant and raspberry coulis flavors entwined at the core, while a bright, iron-tinged streak of mineral adds lift throughout. Shows mouthwatering drive on the finish. A wine of elegant charm. Best from 2021 through 2030’.
92 points James Suckling 92 Points Focused fruit, such as raspberries and blackberries with chalk and flowers. Full body, firm and chewy tannins and a long and defined finish. Quite muscular.
