Jean-Louis Trocard – Château Franc la Rosa – SE Grand Cru 2005 (86 tsomw points)
In the glass a garnet red color.
On the nose intense aromas of black cherries, mushroom, leather, licorice and dark berries with hints of menthol and balsamico.
On the palate medium / full-bodied, nicely layered and elegant with ok complexity showing dark fruit, and soft tannins.
