    2018 Château George 7, Fronsac is now available to order.

    Wines offered under bond and/ or en primeur exclude duty & VAT. The price shown is per case as listed below. For more information please see T&Cs at the bottom of this page

    George 7: is a brand-new Château in the over-performing and undervalued appellation of Fronsac, the lesser-known right bank appellation neighbouring Pomerol and St. Emilion which lie to the East; the latter with which its wines share many similarities. Davy’s are excited to be working on bringing this wonderful Fronsac to the UK.

    Sally Evans has lived and worked in France for the last 25 years. In 2015 she made the inspired decision to purchase a dilapidated property and empty winery with three hectares of 35-year-old Merlot vines, nestled in the heart of Saillans, Fronsac. The Merlot flourishes on terroir of clay soil and the underlying limestone plateau. Experts guiding the estate are Anthony Appollot and Bruno Lacoste (who started his career with Michel Rolland) who also consult for several very well-known left and right bank Châteaux.

    Those looking for a veritable bargain need look no further. 2018 is a vintage that suits Fronsac superbly; Ch. George 7 have captured the cool fruit character, succulent and ripe tannic structure and wonderful balance that show the 2018 vintage at its best. At under £10 per bottle in bond this is nigh-impossible to look past and will undoubtedly be released at higher prices in the future. This will be hard to resist when young, but promises to age gracefully over the next five to ten years. With an eye firmly on the future, Ch. George 7 is amongst a group of high-performers in Fronsac in 2018, hopefully shaping what’s to come from this oft-overlooked region. With high critic praise for this inaugural vintage, this is clearly a Château to start following now before demand and pricing pick up.

    “Wonderfully pleasing energy on the aromatic nose, floral notes, dark bramble-fruit and cherry and a wonderfully fresh mineral driven edge. Fine tannins and well-balanced acidity, pure and ripe fruit – blackberry and raspberry and just a touch of pepper spice and cedar on the finish. This has real verve and class. From 2021 to 2030+. 16/ 20 Points.”
    Davy’s Wine Merchants

    “The deep garnet-purple colored 2018 George 7 gives up notes of prunes, baked blackberries and dried mulberries with touches of hoisin and licorice. Full and voluptuously fruited, with a plush frame, it has just enough freshness and a spicy finish. 89-91 Points.”
    Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate, April 2019.

Onward delivery from bond charges are not included, free delivery on orders above £100 does not apply. Reward Card points are not accruable or redeemable on ‘En Primeur’ or In Bond sales.
