Product Description

AOC Fronton is a small region north of Toulouse - click here to see on a map .  Négrette is an indigenous grape variety producing juicy but elegant wines. Anne-Marie & Pierre Selle have become renown for the quality and consistency of their wines.

Terroir:  The vines of Château Bouissel are planted on the 3rd terrace of the Tarn river. The 22 hectares of the estate are gravelly soils, which is not common in the AOC Fronton.

Grapes 55% Négrette, 20% Syrah, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cot

Wine making The medium long maceration (13 days) is useful to extract all the fruit and the aromas of the 4 grapes while keeping a soft but dense body. Alcoholic fermentation and maceration are carried out in stainless steel tanks.

Our tasting notes The expressive nose presents notes of red fruit and flowers (violet) and some meaty tones..

The attack is very lively and precedes an explosive palate : a nice body, lots of fruit, intense notes of violet and a very round final. Very complex wine for this price, reflecting the blend of 4 variities. This is a great value for money wine. Ready to drink now but will improve with one-three years cellaring

Alcohol: 13%
