The opinion of the sommelierAt 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.
TerroirBordered 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".
Grape varietyThe 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.
VintageThe 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.
