Tessendey-Fronsac-2015

Tessendey, (Fronsac), 2015

Expanses of roses and lavender, paths that run in the hillsides, vineyards that intersect in a horizon of oaks and pines: a few hundred meters from the bell tower of Saillans, Tessendey offers the visitor the charm of a large garden.

But the most beautiful is perhaps below. The vineyard is laid on clay and limestone soil. In this typical terroir of Fronsac, Merlot is a marvel. It expresses a power and a natural freshness. Here, even in the most solar vintages, the Merlots are never heavy.

Merlot occupies 85% of the Tessendey vineyard. It is accompanied by the cabernet franc. Around the castle, the parcels form a homogeneous group of 8 hectares. From the garden, the view of its sunny slopes is breathtaking.
