Château Chapelle Labory 2015 - Cuvée Parcellaire, Fronsac

Number of wine boxes of 3 bottles to add to basket:

The opinion of the sommelier

At the nose, remarkable flavours of black and red berries. At the palate, you’ll be charmed by the wine’s density and its elegance. Tannins are silky, with a chocolate taste which is a signature taste of amazing warm vintages. Wines of the vintage 2015 have a very noticeable ageing potential in Bordeaux. This Fronsac can be appreciated right now or in the next two or three years. 

 

Terroir

Bordered on the West by the Dordogne River and on the East by the Isle River, the appellation Fronsac gathers magnificent landscapes of plateaux and hillsides. Located just a few miles away from Saint-Émilion, its clay and limestone soil is complex and even have its own specific name: "the molasse of Fronsadais".

lecepage Grape variety

The soil of Fronsac exalts Cabernet Franc, a grape variety that appreciates soils of clay and limestone! It is no coincidence if it is often grown in Libournais, the part of Bordeaux where Fronsac is. It is renowned for its aromatic sharpness, its spicy aromas and the ageing potential it provides to the wine. A subtle blend that celarly shows that even added in small quantity, some grapes can change a lot the wine.

lemillesime Vintage

The vintage 2015 is unanimously known as asuccess in all the appellations of the Bordeaux area. Red wines are silky and intense with deep fruity and elegant aromas. On the scale of great vintages, it stands between 2005 for its power and very silky tannins and 2009 for the density and a beautiful length. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Winemakers since 1628, the Trocard family perpetuates the know-how of Bordeaux by producing on 3 estates (Mancèdre, Laborde and Jeandeman) wines of high quality and elegance. The family watchword : respct. Respoct for the soils ; respect fo the wine and for the wine lovers by providing them the best quality and passing on the wine spirit to the following generations.
