Don't want to break the bank on Pomerol and Saint Emilion? Try the little brother of the Right Bank, Fronsac. With wines traditionally showcasing structure and elegance and the 2016 vintage creating the ideal conditions for wines of this style, what are you waiting for? BHW has asserted before and gently reminds the savvy wine buyer: Bordeaux produces the best value wines in the world and this is one of them. With such a highly rated vintage as 2016, you can't miss this.
The terroir of Fronsac closely resembles the clay and limestone soils found in the highly sought after wines from Saint Emilion without the hefty price tag. With most of these wines being consumed locally only about 25% of wines are exported. A rare find and great value from this boutique producer and absolutely worth a try. Delivering value-driven wines Fronsac is home to well-known producers like Michel Rolland's Chateau Fontenil and Chateau de la Dauphine.
Tasting Notes: Red Wine. Merlot, Cabernet Franc. Ruby red in color, with aromas of red and black fruits, toasted nuts, and a floral undertone. Balanced on the palate with a lovely lingering finish of red fruit, black pepper, and cocoa.
