"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."

Expert Opinion

2018

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. "
