Chateau Villars Fronsac, 2010


Chateau Villars Fronsac, 2010

From the cellar: A few years ago we bought six bottles of Fronsac. Still a couple left in the cellar, so we pulled one out to test its legs and celebrate this glorious spring weather. It is aging stupendously. Berries, licorice, charcoal, a spicy kick, smooth like angora, intense and fruit forward with a soft oaken finish. Absolutely sensational. When you think Bordeaux this is what you think of.

 

Price: $21 USD in 2013.

 

Market Liquidity: There’s good reason The Telegraph called Fronsac the Bridesmaid of Bordeaux.
