The high plateau of Saint-Aignan is one of the areas linked to the quality of the Fronsac Appellation. The particularity of this terroir can be found in its extreme homogeneity - The soil is clay and limestone, on a limestone bedrock, and the vineyard faces south, south-west, facing Pomerol, ensuring limitless hours of perfect sunshine and drainage. Deep purple in color with forward aromas of toasty plum and currant. Nice weight. Finishes long. Great with roast beef.
On rare occasions, a chosen vintage of a wine may sell out or be replaced by a new release after your order is placed. With bottles of wine listed under $15, we will not hold up an order and will simply automatically substitute the wine with the comparable vintage. Please be assured that we will only substitute with a vintage for the same type, varietal and winery.
During extreme weather during the Summer and Winter months we do recommend delaying shipments. We do not like to ship if the weather is above 85 degrees or below 32 degrees. To ensure the safety of your product we do recommend holding the shipment. We will hold in our temperature controlled facility until weather permits.
During Checkout you may Choose the Hold Until Safe and we will ship it once weather conditions are suitable
In this case, we will watch the weather closely and will remove the hold and ship your order as soon as conditions permit. The release dates will vary, and because there is no specified date for delivery, the warehouses will ship it as weather permits. If the Hold Until Safe option is released and your order is shipped, you will receive a shipping notice with the tracking number link.
