(JS=89) A fruity and straightforward wine with blueberry and blackberry character. Full body, delicate tannins and a fresh finish. Why wait? Drink now. (RP=88) The 2012 La Fleur Morange Mathilde is bottled after only 12 months in barrel and represents 100% Merlot from proprietor Jean-Franois Julien. It is an exuberant, extroverted style of Bordeaux, with loads of fruit and a dark ruby/purple color. A hedonistic fruit-bomb, it is soft, round, medium-bodied and best drunk over the next 5-6 years.
