Château de Poncié | Beaujolais, France
Le Pré Roi
A notably ripe, but still attractively fresh nose. Features notes of black raspberry liqueur, pepper, spice and plenty of earth. There is fine concentration to the relatively refined medium weight flavors that possess really lovely vibrancy; all wrapped in a delicious, intense and beautifully long and complex finale. While this could be enjoyed young, it should amply reward mid-term cellaring as well.
