Fronsac

The low hills of Fronsac and Canon-Fronsac, close to the Gironde estuary, have been producing good wine since the early 17th century. Even by the beginning of the 19th century the wines of Fronsac were much more famous than those of Pomerol on the other side of Libourne.

Fronsac and Canon-Fronsac appellations are concentrated on high limestone dominated land, with Merlot and Cabernet Franc dominating. After years of under achieving, the last twenty years have seen a resurgence and some great value can be found here. The wines at the same time show the sweet and velvety side of the right bank whilst betraying a firmer more Médoc style structure
