Just west of Pomerol, the scattered vineyards of Fronsac are found on low lying hills overlooking the Dordogne river. This region is sometimes called “Bordeaux’s little Tuscany”. The wines are firm and full bodied while showing an attractive fruitiness.
This minute appellation, Canon-Fronsac, produces wines that can be a trifle stronger than Fronsac. Merlot is the staple grape variety in those two appellations with some added Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Pressac (aka Malbec) to spice up the final blend.
Excellent example of a classic Bordeaux, showing good bramble fruits with a nice touch of cedar. Fruit, acidity and tannins are all very well balanced. A good buy and perfect with roast meats.
