Fronsac


84.5/100


AL: Medium deep ruby red. Sweet nose of red berries and herbs. The palate is classically built with marked tannin, high acidity and red fruit, some herbal spiciness, medium weight and length.


MDM: Dark purple red with violet hue. Clean nose with slightly vegetal flavor, discreet spices and berry fruit, red peppers. On the palate medium weight and length with firm tannins.


*Nose : black fruit lightened with a touch of vanilla. A lingering flavour of nutshell. The hint of gentian is supported by tannins which in no way detract from the balance of the wine.


> Accompanying dishes : duck breast


Beef braised in red wine


Camembert cheese


Nase : Schwarze Früchte, erhellt durch einen Vanilletouch. Anhaltender Duft von Nussschale. Die Enziananklänge stützen sich auf Tannine , die die Harmonie des Weins keineswegs beeinträchtigen.

im Rotwein geschmortes Rindfleisch


Camembert (Käse)
