The Details

In a Nutshell

Fronsac - a great value alternative to Saint-Emilion but equally good in its own right.

Tasting Notes

A great vintage of this wine - powerful, concentrated and already well-knit but still youthful. Packed with intense black mulberry flavoured fruit and firm but smooth tannins, the ripe fruit makes this very drinkable now and it will continue to develop more complexity over the next 5 years.

Grape Blend

Merlot

Production Notes

The vineyard is planted on fairly steep slopes of clay and silt soil. The 35 year old Merlot vines are trained low and planted close together. Permanent grass cover and green harvesting keep yields low.

85% of the wine is matured in concrete vats and 15% in barrel for at least three years.
