Claret Les Sources Fronsac 2005: An £8 gem of a wine
I'm not sure where you find this wine online, but Claret Les Sources Fronsac 2005 is worth noting.
Here's the 'closest' web link.
At just £8 a bottle in the UK it's a delicious, powerful tangy right bank bargain.
Being right bank merlot is clearly dominant.
At the price it's clearly a gem. The long, nearly-tannic-but-not finish follows a deceptively mellow and aromatic nose and some big smooth raspberry fruit in the middle.
I tried what you might call the big brother of this wine on Monday, Château la Rivière. I'll post separately on that.
