A Grand Vin in Red from Fronsac

Enjoying a fantastic location on the Fronsac terroir, Chateau Francs Magnus boasts an exceptional vineyard of 13 hectares, all in one piece, on the Right Bank of Bordeaux.

The vineyard is planted on a limestone plateau covered with a thin layer of clay. This limestone terroir, similar to that of Saint-Emilion, contributes a certain minerality and elegance to wines.

The Chateau Francs Magnus estate is planted like a typical property of the Fronsac appellation with 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.

The Chateau Francs Magnus 2018 is made with the greatest respect for both terroir and fruit. The vinification took place without crushing the berries, in order to preserve the freshness of the fruit. Frustoconical stainless steel tanks were used to make possible a smooth extraction of tannins and give the wine great elegance.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Francs Magnus reveals notes of raisin cake, baked plums and chocolate box with hints of fallen leaves and menthol. The palate is full-bodied with loads of berry preserves and baking spice flavors and a chewy texture, finishing peppery.
