The temperate western climate found in the Libourne region is ideal for ensuring good ripeness of the grapes. It is a climate characterized by mild summers and cool, wet winters.
Located on plateaus and hillsides, the vineyard flourishes in clay-limestone soils suitable for the production of red wines of great ageing potential and quality. More precisely, the soils are made up of Fronsadais molasses: a mixture of sandstone and clay.
The grape varieties authorised to produce this appellation are Merlot (which accounts for 85% of the vines planted), Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
What to expect during the tasting phase? To the eye, you will appreciate a colour that can be very dark red, dark ruby or garnet. Your nose will discover all the power of this wine and its very great aromatic variety because notes of red fruits and spices will be there. An expert nose will even detect aromas of toast and coffee. Finally, on the palate, it is above all the power and elegance of the tannins that assert the singularity of its wines.
The most successful wine dishes are those that combine Fronsac with red meats, dishes in sauce and spices or sweet cheeses.
