Fronsac

The often overlooked commune of Fronsac worked its magic again in 2018, particularly on the higher spots of the appellation. We have long been championing the quality of La Dauphine and Moulin Haut Laroque, both of which were superb in 2018 and will almost certainly offer great value for money. These are wines to stock up on for guilt-free enjoyment over the years to come.

Please note that we can source wines in any format if offered by the Château. Just indicate which size you would like in your wishlist order form or email us with a specific request. Bottling charges do apply so please see our Terms for more details.

There's good concentration on the palate too and it wears the hefty weight of new oak well. Perhaps not the most refined mid-palate but it's full of comforting richness and isn't too heavy. This definitely over-delivers at this level and there's a lovely spicy, fresh finish. One for those that like to curl up on a winter's evening with a dark-fruited, full-bodied red. Drinking range: 2024 - 2032L&S(Apr 2019)
