En Primeur Château George 7, Fronsac, will be available for delivery or storage once it lands in the UK, usually two years following the en primeur offer.
We’re thrilled to offer the third vintage of this fantastic Fronsac to the UK. Three hectares of 35-year-old Merlot vines, nestled in the heart of Saillans, Fronsac. A considerable amount energy has gone in to developing the property, vineyards and wine-making facilities, with the Merlot vines flourishing on terroir of clay soil and the underlying limestone plateau. There is a real focus on sustainability, with cover crops planted and a commitment to environmentally friendly practices across both vineyards and the winery. 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. The wines are vinified partly in 500 litre oak barrels and partly in stainless steel tanks, with ageing in oak barrels before bottling.
Further information on En Primeur Bordeaux will be available soon. For more details please contact [email protected].

Onward delivery or transfer is not included and can be quoted for on request. Free delivery on orders over £100 does not apply to bonded or en primeur wines.
