Chateau Mazeris (Canon Fronsac A.O.C.) 2016

About This Wine

We like to think of the wines of Canon-Fronsac as the Samwise Gamgee of Bordeaux. Sure, it might not have the glamour of Pomerol or Saint-Emilion but you know what? When your backs up against the wall and a giant spider's coming at you, you can rely on good old Canon-Fronsac.

Other than disconcertingly poor Lord of the Rings references, this wine offers wonderful value for money, showing delicious flavours of damson, dark cherry, bramble and liquorice. Thank you, Ch Mazeris Canon-Fronsac you've made an awe-inspiring wine and your spirit guide, Samwise, was the only reason we managed to defeat Sauron.

1805 is when everything started. The De Cournuaud family built the vineyard, and as of the start of 2017 it has been the home to 9 generations of the family. Since 1994 Patrick de Cournuaud has been running the property. The family ethos is to maintain the heritage of both Chateau and the region, while also making modern and approachable Bordeauxs. Mazeris is situated at the top of the town of Saint Michel de Fronsac, in the heart of the AOC Canon-Fronsac, at an altitude of 70 meters. Today, 17 ha of vines are in production, with 80% of Merlot and 20% of Cabernet-Franc. Half of the vineyard surface is cultivated with herb between the rows to keep a good microbiological life in the soils. The wine is currently showing youthful flair, with bright notes of dark berries balanced with well-integrated flavours giving an excellently structured and approachable wine.
