Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Franc-Mayne has an upfront, relatively generous bouquet compared to its peers: black cherries intermingling with mulberry and red plum aromas, a little simplistic perhaps but enjoyable all the same. The palate is medium-bodied with a candied entry, blackberry and bilberry fruit, but it feels tinny and rather reduced on the tapered finish. I must admit that I was expecting more than this. Tasted January 2016.
