Chateau de la Dauphine Fronsac 2005

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for £10 from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/119446. 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 Dorgogne river.[Canon-Fronsac is a sub-appellation created in 1964 for two of those communes] My bottle comes from a large and well-known producer in this area.I started my bottle last night with my supper of roast lamb.There is plenty of a blackcurrant and plum style fruit with a hint of blueberry. The tannins are a liitle bit stronger than I expected but it was still a good example of a right bank claret and it was a good match for the lamb
