  • The thing about French wine,to borrow a sporting or military term is that there is so much strength in depth on the team. It is true that the classed growths and grand crus are lovely wines but there are also the 'petit chateau' and the less fashionable and obscure appellations that would also grace any table.For example;I have just finished wri...

  • Chateau Villars Fronsac Grand Vin de Bordeaux 2010

  • Château de Villars Fontaine Hautes Côtes de Nuits le Rouard -Blanc 1997

    Snoothrank:

    I just had this at a lovely French restaurant and was at first disappointed with my choice, but after about 20 minutes, it opened up beautifully. It is a simple wine, not huge bursts of flavor, but very solid and straight forward. I had it with a fava bean and sweet pea soup. The wine improved with food. yum! Read More
