Description

A fresh Fronsac red wine with a beautiful aromatic palette

The estate

A magnificent property located on Bordeaux’s Right Bank, Château de La Dauphine has become, over the years, one of the greatest wines of the Fronsac appellation.

The vineyard

A benchmark among Fronsac wines, Château de La Dauphine benefits from a mosaic of terroirs spread over nearly 66 hectares, 40 of which are in production. The vines are 30 years old on average and are planted on clay-limestone, clay-silt soils on Fronsadais molasse or on fossil-rich limestone.

Committed to an ethical and environmental approach, Château de La Dauphine cultivates its vineyards under organic farming certification as well as according to biodynamic principles. Since 2018, the ethical commitment of the estate has been enhanced by an EMS and HVE level 3 certification.

The vintage

Cold and intense, the winter was punctuated by a relatively early frost episode which did not impact the vineyard. Thereafter, the milder conditions advanced the budding of the vine. The vines resisted the sunny conditions from May onwards, thanks to the soil composed of limestone, fossil-rich limestone and clay, which keeps it cool and moist.

Winemaking and ageing

Grape harvesting by plot. The grapes are received by gravity and sorted twice. Fermentation is thermo-regulated at 26°C. Vatting time of 25 days. Extraction by manual pumping over. Vertical hydraulic pressing with juice separation. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in barrels (30%), as is maturation in separate batches for 12 months in amphorae and tuns (30% of which are new wood).

Blend

Merlot 
Cabernet Franc.
