Chateau Vieux Richotey Fronsac 2010

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for £10 from a wine merchant in Sussex.Fronsac is an appellation created in 1936 for red and rose wines from 7 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 created in 1964 for two of those communes] I have not been able to discover much information about my bottle or about Chateau Vieux Richotey but I think it is probably a merlot dominated blend..I started the bottle last night with my supper of roast lamb.It is full bodied and well structured. It is certainly fresh and fruity,[think blackcurrant,plum and blueberry] with some soft and smooth tannins. In short this is a very good example of a right bank claret from a 'petit chateau'
