Full-bodied, big, rich and concentrated (15% alcohol), the palate exudes black fruit preserves and spicy accents, framed by firm, ripe, rounded tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing on a minty note.

Tasting notes
Dark color, intense and beautiful. Fruity and creamy nose. Juicy, flavorful palate with bright fruitiness and balanced tannins. An elegant mixture of blackcurrant, cherry, vanilla, tobacco and pepper. Pair with roast turkey, braised or grilled beef and hard cheeses.

Estate
The first proper bottling in Chateau Clos du Roy was in 1970. Beforehand, the vine of this small wine estate was sold as bulk wine to wine trading companies. Clos du Roy quickly gained some fame and ranked among the high quality Fronsac wines.
The Clos du Roy is a family owned 15-hectare wine estate whose wines fully express the richness and the complexity of the greatest Fronsac vines. The Clos du Roy is naturally strong ant prone to ageing, its winemaking process is lead by a constent care for balance and delicacy.

Vinification
Mechanical harvest followed by traditional vinification with temperature control. A slow fermentation is used to allow the optimal extraction of aromas.
