Decanter, 91 Points 

"A sense of minerality with gunflint on the nose, almost a tertiary character, giving the impression of a cooler vintage. The palate is quite backward, and the fruit purity has not really come out to the extent of the 2018, so this is much less revealing." 

About the Producer: 

"One collector described an appointment at Clos Rougeard as “harder to get than an audience with the Pope,” and it goes without saying at this point that they are considered the greatest expressions of the Cabernet Franc grape made anywhere in the world. Finessed, perfumed, incredibly ageworthy…these wines have it all. 

While intense and unabashedly tannic in their youth, the structure of the wines at Clos Rougeard allows them to go the distance, which Nadi and Charly enthusiastically cellar for future generations to enjoy." 

Alcohol: 12.5% 

Biodynamic farming.
