Galloni says, Among the smaller Right Bank appellations, savvy readers should pay extra attention to Fronsac this year." We could not resist loading up on this beauty, one The Wine Advocate describes as "earthy, briary-scented bouquet with great definition and personality. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, good body and is very well balanced, the finish offering blackberry and bilberry notes with a touch of sea salt. This is a great Fronsac wine in the making." You're going to thank yourself 12 times for snatching up a case of this one, for less than $200!
