Description

Frontonio is the passion project of three friends; Fernando Mora MW, oenologist Mario López and international business lawyer Francisco Latasa from Zaragoza. The winery is named after Saint Frontonio, the Patron Saint of the village.  Sheer determination and passion has meant that Frontonio has emerged as one of the most refreshing wine ventures in Aragón, both in terms of recovering old vines and driving Garnacha`s renaissance in the area. The vineyards are found at over 400 meters above sea level near Épila, on the left bank of the river Jalón, where clay-limestone soils prevail.


This terrific wine is a blend of Garnacha Tinta and Garnacha Peluda, often know as Lledoner Pelut in France, which is fermented in cement tanks and then aged in French oak.  Cherry and redcurrant fruit dominate with underlyig hints of peppery spice and toasty oak.  Lovely fresh acidity balances the medium weight fruit and keeps this silky smooth wine lively and interesting.

 The Les Betes Rousses Rouge is very easy going with hints of spice, plums and red berries on the nose, it is beautfully rounded and balanced, with gentle tannins on the finish.  A cracking mid-week red.

This wine shows intense cherry red colours and has aromas of mature red fruits with spices such as vanilla, cinnamon and a touch of black pepper. On the palate it is a soft yet structured wine, open, balanced and warming.

2020 Chateau Saransot Dupre, Cru Bourgeois Superieurlistrac

Bordeaux Blend

Chateau Saransot-Dupre is a favourably sited 17 hectares property that lies between Fourcas Dupré and Fourcas Hosten in Listrac.  Due to Listrac’s cooler temperatures, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are favoured over Cabernet Sauvignon to form the majority of the blend, helping them achieve optimum ripeness.  Much like Chateau Fourcas Hosten, the wines have improved year on year since 2010 and the property were put on the radar thanks to a certain Robert Parker hailing the 2010 vintage as 'classed growth quality'.  High praise indeed!
