Wine of Fronsac appellation
Fronsac is an AOC red wine which is part of the Bordeaux wine region. The Fronsac AOC is spread over the communes of Fronsac, Saint Aignan, La Rivière, Saint-Germain-de-la-Rivière, Saillans and Galgon. 

Fronsac is an old vineyard area made up of valleys. The vineyards now cover an area of 830 hectares, with an annual production of over 44,000 hectolitres. Located in an area where the Dordogne and Isle rivers meet, water is omnipresent. This contributes to the creation of a microclimate which reduces the risk of night-time frosts in spring and tempers the heat in summer. The Fronsac vineyards grow on very sunny hillside slopes. The soils are fairly diverse: alluvial at the bottom of the slope and clay-limestone as you move up the hills. Asteriated (fossil-rich) limestone breaks through in some areas. The substrate is made up of "Fronsac molasses”, a mixture of clays and sandstone. The well-drained land allows the Merlot and Cabernet Franc that make up this wine to thrive and reach perfect maturity. 

Displaying a beautiful ruby tone, Fronsac wines are intense and distinguished on the nose, releasing aromas of red fruit, pepper and even spice box. On the palate, they show lovely body and consistency. Well-built, with firm (but never aggressive) tannin, they have excellent ageing potential. A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, these are elegant, meaty wines with a complex personality. The Fronsacs from Château de Carles, Château de la Rivière, Château Moulin Haut-Laroque and Château de la Dauphine are worthy of special mention.
