Wine Entry : Chateau Renard 2000 AOC Fronsac

Got this bottle from DFS and have not had the opportunity to open till now. It has a dark ruby red colour and very aromatic when opened. Not very sure about the price of the wine should be ranging from S$ 20 - 30.

Smell : Attap seed, fresh pineapple and melon smell, very similar to a freshly cut greenish honeydew.

Taste : Substantial acidity but smooth. Full-medium bodied wine, overtones of strong cocoa and coffee beans taste.

After-taste : Astringent tannins with a fierce finish.

Description at the back of the label : With a dense ruby-crimson colour, this wine presents aromas of ripe fruit and hint of liquorice. It is medium bodied and deliciously fruity, with mellow tannis. The finish with low acidity is concentrated. Blend for the 2000 vintage 85% Merlot 15% Cabernet Franc. Production for the 2000 vintage is 22,300 bottles.
