The 2020 Carlmagnus has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and vivacious scents of redcurrant jelly, ripe black plums and boysenberries, plus hints of iron ore, black truffles, lavender and cracked black pepper. The medium to full-bodied palate fills the mouth with intense red and black fruit layers, supported by ripe, rounded tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long and earthy.

An enjoyable, well-made Fronsac, the 2020 Château Carlmagnus checks in as 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc brought up in 40% new oak. Offering medium-bodied richness as well as solid aromatics of red and black fruits, leafy herbs, and spring flowers, it has a good sense of elegance and solid length on the finish. Drink bottles over the coming 7-8 year or so.

The 2020 Carlmagnus has a lively, quite briny bouquet that is well-defined and focused. The palate is taut and fresh with a spicy opening, fleshy on the mid-palate with orange rind and allspice mixed with licorice on the finish. Fine.
