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.

  • Château Fontenil Red Bordeaux Blend Fronsac 2011


    The 2011 Fontenil - after a laying down of about 2 years - has settled into a civilised yet acidic food wine (sometimes euphemistically known as a "classic vintage"). Still, this is Bordeaux as it is usually known and understood. This wine will last another 10 years, but whether it will improve much is debatable. Today, it is good wine with mea... Read More

  • 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
