Description

A smooth and structured Fronsac red wine

The estate

A beautiful estate situated on the right bank of Bordeaux, Château de La Dauphine has become, over the years, one of the greatest wines in the Fronsac appellation.

The vineyard

A benchmark among Fronsac wines, Château de La Dauphine enjoys a tapestry of terroirs that spread over nearly 53 hectares. The vines are 26 years old on average and are planted on clay-limestone, clay-silt soils on limestone-clay-sandstone, known as molasse de Fronsadais, or on asteriated limestone.

The vintage

The weather conditions during the first months of the year were particularly wet, leading to mildew pressure. The summer was very dry. The months of September and October were magnificent, with plenty of sunshine and light rainfall that boosted the ripening cycle of the grapes while maintaining the vines’ healthy condition. The harvest was finally carried out in a serene manner, with grapes that boasted an optimum maturity.

Blend

Merlot
Cabernet Franc.

Characteristics and tasting tips for Château de La Dauphine 2016

Nose
The nose exudes a gorgeous palette of ripe fruits.

Palate
The suave and structure palate offers silky tannins. In line with the beautiful 2015 vintage, the 2016 is even more concentrated and bright. The balanced palate reveals an ideal level of acidity which gives the wine freshness and a good ageing potential.
