2006 Château Fonréaud

2006 Château Fonréaud
I have a special place in my heart for this Listrac. The 1982 was one of my first real "oh, this is a really good wine" back in 1987, if my memory serves me right (before any note book). Still remember where I drank it and with whom.
The 2006 offers up a restrained, forest floor nose with notes of dried black currants, graphite, gravel and dry tobacco. 
The taste is tight and dry with notes of red and black currants, lead pencil shaving and dry tobacco. I guess it needs a couple of years to integrate fully.
