Estate Notes

Château Cassagne-Haut-Canon’s La Truffiere 2014 is a brilliant value, relatively early drinking right bank Canon-Fronsac from the great 2010 Bordeaux vintage. It was purchased in its original wooden cases and 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 owners' 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 Jean-Jacques Dubois is a serious, sensitive man, who cares passionately, yet in a studious, understated fashion, that his wines reflect the very best his superb terroir and mother nature provide him with from one vintage to the next – a welcome respite from certain corporate Bordeaux château.

Reviews

Ripe red/blackcurrant fruit with touches of woodsmoke, truffle, clove and an elegant, creamy, mocha, spicy character pervading both the aromatic development and palate. Harmonious and well-balanced with sappy tannins, a mineral freshness and floral lift on the impressively persistent finish, overlaying the sucrosity of ripe fruits. A real delight now, yet with more to come…

“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 MW
