Estate Notes

Château Cassagne-Haut-Canon’s La Truffiere 2010 is a brilliant value early drinking right bank Fronsac from the great 2010 Bordeaux vintage. Purchased in original wooden cases, it is drinking beautifully right now, with plenty more development to come in bottle.

La Truffière is Cassagne Haut-Canon’s top wine. It refers to the truffles found on the estate by the estate dog. The château, a rather charming farmhouse, is perched on a Fronsac hilltop (northwest of Saint-Émilion), with wonderful views over the Dordogne. They often say that wines reflect the winemaker’s personality, and on our annual Bordeaux field trip, Jean-Jacques Dubois (and his wife and sons who bundled out of their car from the school run!) was bursting with welcoming joie de vivre – a welcome change from certain corporate château.

Reviews

"Notes of red and black fruits as well as hints of mocha, espresso and toast along with some minerality make for a medium-bodied, elegant style of wine..." eRobertParker.com

“Fronsac is one of Bordeaux’s unsung wine regions with a noble history, some great wine terroirs...Fronsac can offer some superb value.” Jancis Robinson
