Description

Chateau Le Roc Fronton

Chateau Le Roc Fronton is medium-bodied, with notes of red berries, cherry, a hint of violet and a touch of spice.

Wonderful scent of parma violets, peonies and a suggestion of marzipan, medium-bodied with red fruits (cherries and raspberries), a hint of leaf and some peppery notes.

Soft tannins and a bright fresh finish. A distinctly savoury red this would go well with charcuterie and wild duck.

Chateau Le Roc Fronton Cuvee Classique is made from a field blend of 65% Négrette, 25% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Côtes du Frontonnais is a highly unique winemaking region located on the left bank of the Tarn River about twenty miles north of Toulouse.

The area is generally flat, with occasional hills that create small slopes. The vineyard‘s subsoil is composed of ice age deposits, topped by alluvial soil and rouget, a material very rich in iron that lends a particular flavour to the wines.

The typical climate of the region is similar to that of Bordeaux: warm and dry in the summer, and mild and wet in the winter.

Jean-Luc and Frederic Ribes have always wanted to make Frontonnais with some oomph.
A soil composed of gravel and stone, allied to low-yielding vines, provided the foundation for this intention.

In 1988, Jean-Luc and Frederic Ribes took over their father’s property, whose 13 hectares of grapes were habitually sold to the cooperative in Fronton. The brothers decided to get serious and bottle their own wine.

They called their property Château le Roc, but were later told by appellation authorities to remove the first word as no château had ever graced the property.

Domaine Le Roc followed, and the name was finally shortened to Le Roc (which everyone had always called the property anyway).
