The appellation Fronsac

Fronsac is a fantastic wine-growing region. It lies on the right bank of the Bordeaux river. So that means a leading role for the merlot grape - the so-called left bank is mainly planted with cabernet sauvignon. The AOP Fronsac is bordered by two rivers. The Dordogne and the Isle. And it includes seven communes. La Rivière, Saint-Germain-de-la-Rivière, Saint-Michel-de-Fronsac, Saint-Aignan, Saillans, Galgon and Fronsac. The appellation covers 850 hectares and produces some 44,000 hectolitres of red wine a year. Merlot and also cabernet franc do very well on the rocky hills with soils of clay and limestone. Good news: we see that Fronsac's price per hectare has been rising slightly for a decade. Despite the market's downward trend. This confirms the soundness of this appellation. Of course, the best terroirs never drop in price.
