Fronsac Wine

Fronsac

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 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.

  • Chateau Fontenil 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The 2010 Fontenil is an elegant wine with a nose of blackberry confit or jam; the entry is soft, with pencil lead (graphite),soft tannin, and brambleberry dominant. There are woody notes on the finish not entirely sourced to oak conditioning, so we stop short at 89. Ready to roll. Read More

  • Château Fontenil Red Bordeaux Blend Fronsac 2011

    Snoothrank:

    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
