This is a firmly structured wine, dominated by solid tannins. Ample acidity and fruit concentration suggests it should age well, and be ready to drink from 2022.
A delicious red with brick, dark-berry and walnut character. Medium body and light tannins. Drink now.
The 2016 La Roque de By has an understated bouquet that demands encouragement: blackberry, graphite with a touch of stewed black tea. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, quite firm with good body and a solid finish that suggests this Cru Bourgeois will age for a decade, possibly more. Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois tasting in London. (NM)
