Estate Notes

Château Cassagne-Haut-Canon’s La Truffiere 2014 (magnum) is a brilliant value, relatively early drinking right bank Canon-Fronsac from the great 2010 Bordeaux vintage. 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 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.


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
