Fronsac Wine

Fronsac

Fronsac is an appellation created in 1936 for red and rose wines from 7 communes around the village of that name west of the town of Libourne and north of the Dordogne river, [Canon-Fronsac is a sub-appellation created in 1964 for two of those communes]. The wines are dominated by Merlot, just as in nearby Pomerol and St-Emilion. The best of these are serious, ageworthy -- and bargains.

(Tradition) 2016 from Fronsac.  This wine is little known to Fronsac lovers (and there are a few), and being 100% Merlot, I think, it is quite soft, supple and luscious.  I would estimate the cost in the US to be about 20 dollars.  This really is a steal.Why did I sele...

    Snoothrank:

    This little known property in Fronsac flies under the radar, but has produced a yummy 100% Merlot wine for 2016: The bright cherry red robe and sweet, kirsch-like nose - slightly perfumed with subtle flowers like violets - is inviting, and the entry is filled with cherry and black currant (cassis) and finished by a creamy, medium but very satisf...

  • Château les Trois Croix Ac 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Hints of savory earth and a touch of spice open for this wine with full expression of red fruit, cranberry and strawberry and red currant. Juicy and full bodied on entry, ripe red fruit character with strawberry, red currant and raspberry - bright acidity and good spice, full earth and a rich chocolatey note on the finish with touches of birch b...

  • Chateau Vrai Canon Bouche Fronsac 2014

    Snoothrank:

    A touch spicy on the nose with notes of black pepper, black currant and lively heat. This is richly fruited and smoky on the palate with heady notes of dark blackberry and black currant, sticky resinous tannins throughout, good mineral notes of earth and dark plum with the tartness of young fruit, a touch of dark chocolate and a creamy finish.
