Full-Bodied & Rich

Fronsac vineyards stretch on hillsides overlooking the confluence of the Isle and the Dordogne rivers - this terroir of the Bordeaux area has been renowned from more than three centuries. The Clos du Roy is a family owned 22-hectare wine estate whose wines fully express the richness and the complexity of the greatest Fronsac vines. 

The Clos du Roy has an 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 wine also has the ability to age and develop with time. The winery's goal is to craft this wine by mixing the best density, complexity and balance.

Fine structure and a wealth of succulent, ripe dark-berried fruit, this superb Bordeaux is quite like a Pomerol in style and shows off the credentials of Fronasc as a top right bank appellation.

Pair this wine alongside with grilled steak, pulled pork, duck and hearty dishes.

Press Reviews

Robert Parker

91-93 points

The 2018 Clos du Roy is made up of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Deep garnet-purple colored, it delivers profound baked plums, boysenberry and cassis notes with touches of chocolate box, underbrush and truffles. Medium to full-bodied and packed with generous black fruits, it has a velvety texture and lively line, finishing savory.
