"Plush ripe red fruits balanced by
rounded tannins and acidity blend
together to create a wine that is
concentrated yet approachable young
or can be kept for up to 10 years.
Enjoy with a range of plant-based meals
and meat such as a summer barbecue, a meat or vegetable lasagne, a sharing platter or a roasted vegetable tartine."
Guide Hachette des Vins 2022: 3 stars (highest accolade)
"This is the first vintage from this newly created estate and what a success: it's simply a masterstroke. Intense, perfectly ripe, poised with abundant black fruit, and a hint of toast and vanilla from its ageing, this Fronsac demonstrates all the finest attributes of its appellation. Volume and power without harshness or arrogance, a nice long finish and above all, perfect balance. "
