Fleur de Thenac, Bergerac, France 2009

Rating: 17.5/20pts

A harmonious blend of 75% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon grown on limestone and clay, this is packed with ripe plum characters. Very much a food wine, the tannins are still pretty firm but are integrated, balanced and don’t detract from the wine’s overarching freshness.
