Fronsac Wine


Fronsac is a good-sized appellation in Bordeaux, on the right bank of the Dordogne. The wines are dominated by Merlot, just as in nearby Pomerol and St-Emilion. The best of these are serious, ageworthy -- and bargains.

  • Chateau de la Huste 2009


    Nice enough bordeaux. Dark red fruit, plum, prune, some tar and smoke. Medium tannins, moderate acidity and a short to medium finish. Not overly complex but fairly satisfying. Read More

  • Chateau du Gaby 2010


    Very nice young merlot based Bordeaux. Deep purple color, loads of dark berries, smooth and fine tannins and nice lingering finish. No hint of mustiness that you can get from some merlot, just a nice bit of freshness and a good touch of acidity. Read More
