Château de la Rivière
On the nose, this wine is bright with currants and dark berries, with sweet spices and cedar rounding it off. On the palate, it is medium-bodied and filled with red and black currants, backed by ripe black cherry and sweet spice. Fine tannins and a ni...

I'm not usually a merlot man and this Fronsac really hot the spot. A delightful surprise from a less documented Bordeaux appellation. The notes from the cab grapes really balancing out merlot's silky "hollowness." The Telegraph gave the winery itself...

On the nose, this wine is bright with currants and dark berries, with sweet spices and cedar rounding it off. On the palate, it is medium-bodied and filled with red and black currants, backed by ripe black cherry and sweet spice. Fine tannins and a nice acidic zip to the fruit on the finish. Read More
Chalky and minerally aromas mixed with tart blackberry. Subtle yet distinguishable fruit flavors of blackberry, minerals, and chalk, with a springy acidity. Nice and smooth after aeration. Read More
Had this with some easter lamb at a party. Enjoyed it very much, and it certainly beat the other wines at the table. However I was surprised to find out that it was valued at $70. It was good, but it wasn't that outstanding a Bordeaux to me. Bottle variation maybe? Read More

Just had a bottle of the 2001 Fronsac. Exceptional paired with Lamb with grilled onions and sweet potatoes. Smooth and held up to the Lamb that was grilled with paprika. Can't wait to try it tomorrow with friends who are bringing smoked pork!
$12.99 at Trader Joes, it was the best VALUE we have ever purchased there. sadly, i bought the only case they received and no one knew anything about additional shipments of the wince. Read More
Full-bodied rich wine with tones of black berry and cassis and dandelion. Earthy. There is nothing subtle about this wine with a rich dark red inky in color, almost black. It most definitely aged well. Read More
We loved this wine. Very memorable. We served it with a rib roast of beef and yorkshire pudding. Beautiful color and very smooth. Read More
As it stands today (September 26, 2009), the tannins in this wine greatly diminish any drinking pleasure. But though closed for business, there is promise for the future. The menthol, notes of sour cherry and green acidity which predominate now should open up to something a bit more soft and graceful in 2 to 3 years. Otherwise, be sure to accom... Read More
A fine homage to the Sur Lie style Muscadet of the western Loire. Best with the local seafood. Read More
