Tight and linear with a licorice and tar character. Medium to full body and a juicy finish. Mostly cabernet franc. Apr 2017, www.jamessuckling.com
The 2016 Guitard, Simon Blanchard's Cabernet Franc/Merlot blend, offers notable depth. The Franc aromatics are nicely balanced by the natural richness and ripeness of the dark, fleshy Merlot fruit. Scents of lavender, black cherry, mint and sweet spices lead into the pliant, expressive finish. The 2016 was whole-berry-fermented, underwent malolactic fermentation in barrel and will see about 50% new oak. Interestingly, Blanchard used 8% whole clusters in the 2016. It will be interesting to see where this wine goes in coming years. For now, there appears to be terrific promise.
