After a nice start of an ideal spring the weather turned fresh and humid until the middle of July - and our spirits were low. August and September brought back sun and heat, so they gave the missing energy to the vines in order to ripen and refine the beautiful grapes which were ready to harvest in the beginning of October. Indeed, the quantity is very small, but who will care about that in some years time, when we will taste such a wonderful outcome!

Wine AdvocateOne of the top Fronsacs year in and year out, this blend of 76% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a gorgeous, deep ruby/purple color and sweet blueberry and blackberry fruit. Nice minerality and a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel make for a top-notch Fronsac in this vintage. The color is a healthy ruby/purple and the wine capable of lasting at least 10-15 years.

Wine SpectatorBright raspberry and blackberry preserve aromas and flavors lead the way, lined with anise hints and backed by a graphite note on the finish. Solid. Drink now through 2016. 300 cases imported.
