Chateau de Francs 2011 Bordeaux - Cotes de Francs
90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon (2011 Blend)
70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon (Vineyard)
 
In 1985, two old friends took over Chateau de Francs: Dominique Hebrard (former owner of Chateau Cheval Blanc) and Hubert de Bouard (co-owner of Chateau Angelus). Both these respective Chateaux have reached their highest possible ranking: Saint Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé A. The passion and expertise of these two friends have made Chateau de Francs a sure value and brought the wine to magnificent levels…One of the oldest properties of Bordeaux, Chateau de Francs still has structures built in the Middle Ages on one of the highest hillsides of the Gironde, in the Cote de Francs appellation (the smallest in the Bordeaux wine region). The Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon vines rest on a clay-limestone terroir very similar to that of the Saint-Emilion plateau (the reason the two Saint-Emilion masters were attracted to the property). The Merlot extracts from these soils that silky, unctuous texture so characteristic of the best Right Bank wines. A mature and fully-developed aromatic profile shows raspberry and other small berry notes, with a delicious hint of deep chocolate. In the mouth the wine is stunningly silky and develops in stages, with great roundness, admirable structure and harmony, medium body and moderate tannins. A smooth and long-lasting finish make this one superb wine…

About Cotes de Francs
Cotes de Bordeaux Francs is the appellation title for Cotes de Bordeaux wines made specifically from three parishes at the very eastern edge of the Bordeaux wine region. These wines formerly took the title Cotes de Francs. Saint-Cibard, Tayac and Francs are the three villages in question. They lie roughly eight miles (13km) north of the Dordogne river and are actually much closer to Bergerac than Bordeaux city itself. Nevertheless, the wines made here (both red and white, dry and sweet) are in the classic Bordeaux style and are produced from the classic grape varieties. Cotes de Bordeaux Francs red wines, which constitute the vast majority of the appellation's output, are made predominantly from Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The whites are fashioned from an equally traditional Bordelais blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle. The less globally successful varieties Colombard and Ugni Blanc are also permitted in Cotes de Bordeaux Francs white wines. However, with the international focus of this appellation, these will remain minority components. The topography and soils around Francs, with its slightly elevated limestone clay slopes, are well suited to growing Merlot. This, combined with Cabernet Franc, produces supple, well-structured red wines.
