Chateau les Trois Croix Fronsac 2004

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for £10 from a wine merchant in Sussex. Fronsac is an appellationm created in 1936 for red and rose wines from seven communes around the village of that name west of the town of Libourne and north of the Dordogne river.[Canon-Fronsac is a sub-appellation within Fronsac created in 1964] Chateau Les Trois Croix is a small family owned producer in this area.My bottle consists of 85% merlot and 15% cabernet franc,a typical blend for a right bank claret, and is aged for a year in oak barrels. I started it last night with my supper of roast turkey breast. It is full of a blackcurrant,blackberry and plum style fruit with a little cigar box and some soft tannins that still give good structure.In short,this is an exquisite example of what a good right bank claret should be like and from a 'petit chateau'in one of the less fashionable appellations
