Château Les Tonnelles - Fronsac

Château Les Tonnelles has stayed in the same family since its very beginning, in 1892. The vineyards soak up the sun's rays on a slope overlooking the Dordogne river. The estate is located in the heart of the Fronsac appellation.
Deep ruby in colour, with a pronounced fruity (blackcurrant and red-currant) bouquet and aromas of prune, chocolate and spices. Château Les Tonnelles is quite tannic, but is nevertheless well-balanced and has a long, soft, fruity aftertaste.
