2001 Château GRAND RENOUIL. Canon Fronsac, Bordeaux (Magnum)

Bin:  899

Alcohol percentage:  13.5%

Area:

Canon Fronsac is a little known but much-respected minor Bordeaux sub-region, on the ‘right bank’, not far from Pomerol. Although Merlot dominated the wines have a chunky intensity reminiscent of a rather traditional, old-fashioned style of Bordeaux

Grape variety:

40+ year old Merlot vines, aged for 12 months in 225 litre barrels (30% new oak)

Producer:

Owned by the Ponty family since 1925

Vintage:

Decent, but under-rated year

Maturity potential:

Now at its peak, but still worth decanting. Will hold until 2014 with no cause for concern
