"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. "

2019

GUIDE HACHETTE DES VINS 2022:

 « This Prince would be more like... royalty, given the lofty qualities of the Merlot grape. Already appreciable for its garnet-red colour, bordering on opacity, it immediately displays an elegant stature with its red fruit aromas underlined by hints of vanilla, confirmed by an opulent, rounded palate, well served by smooth tannins.
