Canon Fronsac, Libournais

Château Moulin Haut-Laroque

Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Black berry, charcoal, smoke, ink, bell pepper. A workin’ man’s bordeaux. You need to give this enough air. Popped and poured four days ago, thought it was pretty tight and backwards. So, I put the cork back in and stuck it in the fridge. Four days later, this wine really sings. — 18 days ago

Château La Vieille Cure

Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

So impressed by the quality here. These are hidden gems to my palate that really shine with some age. This shows cigar tobacco, wet leaves, cocoa and plenty of tertiary complexity while retaining freshness with vibrant black fruit, acid and mellow tannins. Thankfully the critics never seem to pick up on this (though JR nailed it with a 17/20), and it unbelievably still retails for around $30. This is in its prime and I expect will drink well for another 10 years at least. — 22 days ago

Gorgeous, pristine - downright youthful w/gobs of black fruit (cherry, plum, blackberry & prune). Also sporting minerals, fig, clay, loam, soil & spice. Seamless integrated tannins & great persistence on finish. You can find great value in Fronsac — 2 months ago

Château Canon la Valade

Canon-Fransac Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

2003 - 18 years old, it's old enough to legally drink itself, and vote in most of the world!! Still youthful with incredible notes of 🍒 cassis & red fruit, ripe blackberry, complemented by a hint of oaky undergrowth, great acidity, solid mouth feel and balance! Huddled close to usually expensive Pomerol and St Emilion, lies the Bordeaux appellation of Canon Fronsac. A value Vigneron Independent find - 18yrs and at it's peak, yet also could have continued to evolve and mature for another few years — 2 months ago

Other night. Bold. 2010 still needed air and had plenty of time left for the cellar. — 9 days ago

Comtes de Neipperg Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Lovely wine that still has a bold tannic structure after a two hour decant. I suspect this wine will have have even better presentation in several years, even though it was fully enjoyable tonight. — a month ago

Château de la Rivière

Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

A relatively light red fuits frame for a Fronsac. Mineral and fresh. Some anise and menthol hints. Nice and balanced, but far from being memorable. — 2 months ago
