    In a few words ...

    A dark-hued Fronsac with a nose of black fruit, notably blackcurrant and blackberry. Woody notes are also present. On the palate, the wine is smooth and full-bodied, with a fine finish. A wine that deserves 3 to 4 years of cellaring before revealing its full potential.

    To be enjoyed without moderation. I've been ordering wine from the Dorneau family for 20 years, and in addition to being a passionate family, they produce the most sublime wine. I sincerely recommend the 2016 millesime!

    Bottle offered by my husband following a trip to the Fronsadais region. I fell in love with this wine. The gold medal is more than deserved. I recommend it, Charlotte

    Very good wine, we enjoyed it perfectly with this weekend's barbecue. Still deserves some ageing, to be seen in 2/3 years. In any case, I recommend it.

    The tasting is similar to that of its colleague "château roullet": a pleasant, all-purpose wine. The score reflects good value for money.

    Pleasant. Can be drunk now, after aeration which will only improve it. only improve it. Can be waited for another 5-6 years

    Decant for 2 to 3 hours, but it's best to let it age a little longer to rediscover the beautiful complexity of the 2009.
