Suckling: "Juicy and firm red with dark berries, wet earth, spices and some bark. Medium body. Creamy finish."
Wine Advocate: "A strong effort from this historic Fronsac estate, the 2021 Clos du Roy reveals aromas of cherries, berries, loamy soil and pencil shavings, followed by a medium-bodied, lively palate framed by ripe tannins and tangy acids."
Neal Martin: "The 2021 Clos du Roy is quite fragrant on the nose, lifted by some polished oak, though the fruit feels pure
and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit and fine acidity. A bit compact, but there is energy on the finish. This is a fine Fronsac in the making."
