Description

This château in Fronsac was built between 1744 and 1750 by Jean-Baptiste de Richon, a lawyer at the Parliament of Paris, and a Civil and Criminal Judge in the Duchy of Fronsac. Shortly after its construction, Maria Josepha of Saxony, the Dauphine of France and mother of several of the last Kings of France (including Louis XVI) stayed at the château for a few days. This event contributed to the property's reputation, which was named in memory of the Princess’s visit.

This area is the home of the very first remarkable Right Bank wines, dating back to the 1730s, Fronsac and Canon-Fronsac actually retained more fame than Pomerol well into the 19th century. Today these wines represent some of Bordeaux’s best hidden gems.

Tasting Notes

This 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc Blend has a deep-crimson colour. The nose is open, presenting ripe strawberry and cherry notes. On the palate, a well-rounded wine, with fruits and spices. This wine has a beautiful potential of ageing as it is one of the greatest vintages of Bordeaux.

Food Pairing

Lamb with a fruit chutney sauce, beef with morels.
