Expert Opinion

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. "
