Fronton Les Petits Cailloux, Domaine Le Roc 2019

Red Wine from France - SW France (excl. Bordeaux)
4.200000000 star rating 5 Reviews
From an exemplary estate in this small and scattered appellation close to Toulouse in south-west France, this blend is made up by the local negrette with syrah in support, a formula that works especially well. Utterly gorgeous expression of fleshy, blackberry and cherry fruit.

Deep, luscious crimson. Nicely integrated with a little graininess on the end. Lots of local character for the money in this local speciality from just north of Toulouse. Good value. 16/20

A great value bottle, with lots of character and the intrigue of the lesser-known negrette variety. An intense rustic nose of blueberry jam, charred wood and poached plum. On the palate, the fruit is luscious but there's freshness also. An interesting discovery of unpretentious yet strong personality. 89/100
