Tasting Notes

"Deep red colour with ruby reflections. The intense nose of red fruit at optimum ripeness (cherry, strawberry) is rounded off with spicy notes. The quality of the tannins is remarkable, giving both elegance and power. Frank Phélan 2016 is a perfect illustration of this tremendous vintage, combining balance, precision and exceptional depth on the palate."
